Cardiac function and metabolism in young adults born premature

This project was led by: Kara Goss

This project was funded by: NIH

The term of this project was: August 2017 to August 2019

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 40

Investigators at UW Madison School of Medicine and Public Health are studying the long term effects of premature birth on cardiac function and metabolism. Using a novel approach to cardiac PET/MR imaging, researchers are studying cardiac efficiency and metabolism in adults born premature.
