Using maths to assess blocked arteries
University of Melbourne researchers have used laser imaging to mathematically model the severity of artery blockages and now may be able to predict danger areas
The stent tech-race against heart attack
From dissolving materials to nanoscience, a technology race is underway to make coronary stents failure-proof because stent failure often means a heart attack.
3D printing to save hearts
Researchers are a step closer to 3D printing custom heart stents during cardiac surgery, thanks to advances in imaging and computational modelling.
