To provide hands on abilities to use the tools available within the CVRG, there are datasets that are available for public use. With ECGs, Physionet provides a research resource for complex physiological signals. The ECGrid Toolkit is able to accept files in Physionet format and pass them to multiple algorithms available within the CVRG analysis services. With Imaging, several ex vivo canine hearts (diseased and normal) and one ex vivo human heart are available for public use. The CVRG has plans in the near future to make a repository of normal human hearts available as well.
The CVRG has several sets of canine and human DTMRI data sets available for public use. Canine DTMRI data is described in Helm et al (2006). Circ. Res. 98(1):125. Information on the organization of the files and links to download are available here.
The CVRG has atlases with analysis of canine heart fiber and sheet angles available for public use. Information on the organization of the files and links to download are available here.
CT images from patients with Ischemic (ICM) or non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM). For more information on available datasets, click here.
