Collaborations exist with Department of Medicine 2, the Department of Pediatric Cardiology and of Paediatric Cardiac Surgery. Studies on the value of CT and MRI in the morphological and functional diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) are also being conducted, as are studies on the optimization of the diagnosis of congenital heart disease and the evaluation of CT coronary angiography in the early diagnosis of the CAD as part of the Excellence Cluster Initiative (Project BD-02 of the Medical Valley EMN). In longitudinal studies, physiological, myocardial adaptation mechanisms can be identified in recreational and high-performance athletes with the help of cardiac MRI.
