New Computer Tool Improves Artery Disease Management New Computer Tool Improves Artery Disease Management

A new, non-invasive diagnostic tool could make it easier, cheaper and safer to diagnose and treat peripheral artery disease (PAD), a condition that affects more than 200 million people worldwide.

A breakthrough computational tool uses non-invasive measurements obtained from the MRIs of a patient’s blood vessels coupled with blood flow rates to predict treatment outcomes, as described in the April 15 edition of the Royal Society’s technical journal, Interface. Lead authors were University of Texas at Austin Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) Research Fellow Shaolie Hossain and ICES Professor Thomas J. R. Hughes. Read more.
