  7. Internet-Based Distributed Quantitative 4D Analysis of Aortic MR/MDCT Images


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Aortic aneurysms and dissections are a cause of frequently preventable death for over 13,000 people annually in the US alone. Many more patients live under a constant threat of a catastrophic aortic event from atherosclerotic or congenital causes. Therefore, early and comprehensive diagnosis of morphological or dynamic changes in the aorta is of great importanc ...
