About Us

Servier Virtual Cardiac Centre is a multidisciplinary research lab dedicated to improving:

  • heart  imaging from mutimodal sensors
  • developing new 3D heart visualization techniques
  • understanding how doctors and patients can gain from better heart imaging
  • developing  advanced simulation technologies capable of predicting surgical and interventional outcomes

We are sponsored by a grant from Servier Canada.

We are a multidisciplinary environment, allowing cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, radiologists, engineers, computing scientists, and mathematicians to collaborate together.

Comparative images of a patient’s abnormal blood vessels, the picture on the left is from an angiogram and the picture on the right is a 3D solid model we made from a CT scan. Our surgeons found the solid model easier to understand because they could pick it up and touch it.
