Post-Processing Software and Algorithm for 4D Flow MRI

Tech ID: 24075 / UC Case 2014-265-0

Brief Description

A software and method which reads and post-processes flow sensitive phased contrast magnetic image resonance images in real-time (4D-Flow MRI).

Full Description

4D-Flow MRI has the potential to provide a comprehensive evaluation of cardiovascular hemodynamics with full volumetric coverage for future cardiac and vascular diagnostics. A new software and method from researchers at the University of California, Irvine allows for post-processing of data obtained from scans to compute hemodynamics-related parameters for quantitative assessment of cardiovascular flows.
