Signal and imaging investigations are currently a basic step of the diagnostic, prognostic and follow-up processes of heart diseases. Besides, the need of a more efficient, cost-effective and personalized care has lead nowadays to a renaissance of clinical decision support systems (CDSS). The purpose of this paper is to present an effective way to achieve a high-level integration of signal and image processing methods in the general process of care, by means of a clinical decision support system, and to discuss the advantages of such an approach. Among several heart diseases, we treat heart failure, that for its complexity highlights best the benefits of this integration. Architectural details of the related components of the CDSS are provided with special attention to their seamless integration in the general IT infrastructure. In particular, significant and suitably designed image and signal processing algorithms are introduced to objectively and reliably evaluate important features that, in collaboration with the CDSS, can facilitate decisional problems in the heart failure domain. Furthermore, additional signal and image processing tools enrich the model base of the CDSS.
