Ontario Consortium for Cardiac Imaging

Ontario Consortium for Cardiac Imaging (OCCI) Cardiac diseases are the leading causes of death and hospitalization in the developed world. In Ontario, we have a unique concentration of expertise across all cardiac imaging modalities located at leading cardiac care institutions in Ottawa, London and Toronto.

The Ontario Consortium for Cardiac Imaging (OCCI) will expand and transform individual efforts into a coordinated program to determine critical anatomic and functional information for assessment, treatment planning and intervention monitoring of heart disease in patients of all ages.

With our industrial partners, we will develop integrated image acquisition, analysis and interpretation tools for use by practicing clinicians, establishing a cardiac imaging industry in Ontario.
