Manuscript by the leading author Erick A. Perez-Alday is accepted by the Journal of Electrocardiology. Congratulations, Erick !!!  We for the first time conducted a prospective clinical study  to assess the accuracy of a three-dimensional (3D) photography-based method of torso geometry reconstruction and body surface electrodes localization. In this work we showed that the accurate torso geometry reconstruction using 3D photography is feasible. Body surface ECG electrodes coordinates as defined by the CT/MRI imaging, and 3D photography, are in good agreement. This study is a step forward towards future widespread implementation of the body surface mapping - based methods in clinical practice.

Leading  hypertension experts  Dr. Suzanne Oparil , MD, and Dr. Barry R Davis, MD, PhD, together with the leading ECG expert Dr. Elsayed Soliman, MD,  joined Dr. Tereshchenko to discuss the risk of sudden cardiac death in hypertension

In the United States, up to 450,000 people per year die suddenly; an average of 1 sudden death every 70 seconds.  Systemic arterial hypertension is a major risk factor for sudden cardiac death and the increasing burden of hypertension is a worldwide problem. The lifetime risk of sudden cardiac death at 30 years of age is higher by 30% in individuals with hypertension. Each 20/10 mm Hg increase in systolic/diastolic blood pressure, is associated with a 20% additional increase in sudden cardiac death risk. Theoretically, antihypertensive treatment should be an effective strategy for sudden cardiac death prevention. However, a recent meta-analysis of 15 randomized controlled trials showed that antihypertensive treatment does not red...

Ryan Gonzales, a Murdock Scholar from Concordia University, presented an update of his summer research at the End of Summer Murdock Scholar Presentations event on Friday. The title of Ryan’s talk was “Independent Association of Sudden Cardiac Death with the T-peak to T-end Interval on VCG”. He presented preliminary data supporting his hypothesis that bifid T waves would be able to independently predict risk of sudden cardiac death, and laid out his plans for future work in the coming year. Ryan will work on this project during the coming school year, and will continue to look for strong evidence to support these results. The Murdock Undergraduate Collaborative Research Program provides opportunities for local Oregon undergraduates to gain the skills and experience necessary for a career in biomedical research. Sponsored by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, students are provided twelve-month stipends to work in labs at OHSU full time during their finally summer of college, and part tim...
