Research in the Dey Laboratory focuses on automated derivation of imaging measures from noninvasive cardiac image data, clinical implementation of novel automated computer processing algorithms, and the application of these tools to solve key clinical problems.
The Dey Laboratory is affiliated with the Biomedical Imaging Research Institute and the Department of Biomedical Sciences.
- Measurement of epicardial and thoracic fat (QFAT software) from non-contrast CT. We have shown epicardial fat measured by this clinical research tool to be associated with coronary atherosclerosis, coronary calcium progression, major adverse cardiovascular events and myocardial ischemia.
- Standardized measurement and characterization of coronary plaque from coronary CT angiography (AutoPlaque software). We have shown low-attenuation noncalcified plaque quantified from coronary CT angiography predicts ischemia and future adverse cardiac events.
