I am interested in how disease affects blood flow in the heart and major blood vessels, and how we can use blood flow measurements to provide better diagnostics/prognostics for patients and clinicians. I focus on the modality of ultrasound, specifically because it can non-invasively measure blood flow at thousands of frames per second, giving it a unique advantage over other imaging modalities.
My work is split between developing methods that expand the functionality of ultrasound blood flow imaging and clinical studies that assess the feasibility and utility of these methods.
Field(s) of expertise
High frame rate ultrasound imaging, ultrasound contrast agents, particle image velocimetry, 4D ultrasound imaging
Education and career
Dr. Voorneveld received the B.Sc. degree in electro-mechanical engineering (2009) and an M.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering (2014) from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering at Erasmus MC (2019). In 2021, he visited the Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway, as part of a Netherlands Heart Institute Fellowship.
Scholarships, grants, and awards
Jason Voorneveld was awarded a Netherlands Heart Institute Fellowship in 2021, to perform research abroad at NTNU, Trondheim, Norway. In 2022 Jason was awarded a Dekker Postdoc Beurs to develop 4D-flow echocardiography to assess ventricular function.
