Dr. Matthew Jolley's research lab is focused on the visualization and quantification of congenitally abnormal heart structures using 3D imaging. Children with congenital heart disease have a broad range of anatomy and there are few readily available (commercial) tools to facilitate image-based structural phenotyping and patient specific planning of interventions.  As such, we develop and apply custom tools built upon open-source platforms to help answer critical question in this the unique population.  We collaborate with surgeons, cardiac imagers, interventional cardiologists, and computer scientists with the long-term goal of delivering personalized structural modeling to inform optimal interventions in an individual patient.

We develop and apply image processing tools to create 3D echocardiogram derived models of pediatric heart valves in order to better understand valve function, and inform prognosis and surgical repair.

Typically, "three-dimensional" images are viewed on a flat 2D screen, limiting comprehension of the latent information available to better understand anatomy. We are interested in visualizing 3D echocardiographic, cardiac MRI and cardiac CT, as well as the models derived them more realistically using volume rendering, 3D printing, and virtual reality.
