    Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a broadly used therapy in patients that suffers from heart failure (HF). The positive outcome of CRT depends strongly on the parameters criteria used to select patients and a lot ...
  • Kalinić, Hrvoje; Loncaric, Sven; Bijnens, Bart (SpringerOpen, 2013)
    In this paper, we propose a novel approach for estimating image similarity. This measure is of importance in assessing image correspondence or image alignment and plays an important role in image registration. Currently, ...
  • Loncaric, Filip; Bijnens, Bart; Sitges, Marta (Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Journals, 2018)
    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is clinically defined by the presence of increased left ventricular (LV) wall thickness that is not solely explained by abnormal loading conditions. The aetiology is diverse, but in 60% of ...

    Objective To assess carotid and aortic intima–media thickness (IMT) in term small‐for‐gestational‐age (SGA) newborns with and without prenatal signs of severity. Methods This prospective study comprised 67 cases ...
  • Giménez Mínguez, Paula; Bijnens, Bart; Bernardino Perez, Gabriel; Lluch Alvarez, Èric; Soveral, Iris; Gómez, Olga; García Cañadilla, Patricia, 1985- (Springer, 2017)
    Introduction: Aortic coarctation is one of the most difficult cardiac defects to diagnose before birth, and it accounts for 8% of congenital heart diseases. Antenatal diagnosis is crucial for early treatment of the neonate ...
  • Rudenick, Paula A.; Bijnens, Bart; Segers, Patrick F.; García-Dorado, David; Evangelista, Arturo (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2015)
    Descending aortic dissection (DAD) is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. Aortic wall stiffness is a variable often altered in DAD patients and potentially involved in long-term outcome. However, its relevance ...
