    Unblocking arteries with maths

    University of Melbourne researchers have combined mathematical modelling, supercomputing and laser imaging technology to assess the severity of artery blockages without having to insert a physical separate pressure wire to assess blood pressure loss around a blockage. The modelling could open the way to preventing blockages in the first place by more accurately identifying whether part of an artery is prone to fat and cholesterol build up. University of Melbourne Professor Peter Barlis, a cardiologist and academic researcher at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne and the Northern Hospitals, said: “Arteries are very complicated geometrically, but if we can model how ...
