  • Systems and computer-implemented methods for detecting and evaluating the flow of biological fluids in the body, and in particular facilitating medical diagnoses of pathologies such as stenosis or other pathology of a hepatic artery or other non-carotid vasculature
  • The system uses machine learning to analyze a spectral Doppler ultrasound waveform of blood flow and is fully automated, removing the risk of human error in calculating a stenosis index
  • Alternative to conventional angiography which is expensive and invasive

Advantages

  • Provides an accurate, non-invasive screening method to facilitate the medical diagnosis
  • Does not require imaging agents which are sometimes nephrotoxic and/or which can trigger immune reactions

Potential Applications

  • Can be applied to the diagnosis of stenosis in hepatic and other non-carotid vasculature
  • Anticipate is used to aid diagnosis and monitoring of peripheral arterial disease in the elderly, diabetics, and smokers
  • Anticipate use to monitor sickle-cell disease
