Description of the thesis topic
The recruited Doctoral student will perform simulations of the internal hemodynamics of the heart of healthy patients or volunteers. The geometry will be obtained by analyzing medical images of the MRI type that will also be used to define the movements of the heart cavity. Particular attention will be paid to the correct way to take into account the dynamics of the mitral valve as well as the effect of the chordae tendineae between this valve and the ventricular muscle on hemodynamics. The work will be carried out in collaboration with experts in echocardiography, the numerical simulations carried out to serve as support data for the establishment of new hemodynamic reconstruction algorithms usable in clinical routine. The analysis of the numerical data obtained should also lead to the writing of scientific articles discussing in particular the nature of intra-cardiac flow.
The work will be carried out at IMAG, a joint CNRS unit and the University of Montpellier. The candidate will join the YALSES2BIO team made up of 6 to 8 people including 2 permanent staff.
Constraints and risks
Nothing to declare
As part of the 4D-iVFM research project funded by the ANR, IMAG is recruiting a PhD student whose main task will be to carry out simulations of the internal hemodynamics of the hearts of healthy patients or volunteers. The candidate should have a solid background in fluid mechanics and ideally have a first successful experience in high-performance simulation and Fortran90 and/or Python programming. Knowledge of the physiology of the cardiovascular system is a plus but not essential. The recruited student will join the YALES2BIO team (https://imag.umontpellier.fr/~yales2bio/) of IMAG.
