Research: Preclinical Stent Implant Study.
In this study, the role of advanced imaging technology in stent
implantations is discussed, following their individual roles in providing
scans through which stents could be implanted. This study also assessed
the ability of multi-modality approaches in diagnosing problems to insure
the highest level of assurance and post-operative patient health.
Highlighting the need for the use of clinical imaging devices in
pre-clinical trials, this study emphasizes the need for more reliable
data in the device development and evaluation process.
