Summary of the Impact:
With the development of medical devices such as stents and valves to treat patient trauma, the need for invasive surgical procedures has been greatly reduced. This has led to significant reductions in hospitalisation time and improved patient outcomes. Improvements in the X-ray visibility of these devices is critical to allow surgeons ensure exact placement while keeping the patient’s X-ray exposure to a minimum.
This research will significantly improve treatment quality by reducing time required for treatment, repeat procedures and trauma
