Imaging of Blood Flow Provides New Way to Look Into Cardiac Abnormalities and Dysfunction, Mount Sinai School of Medicine Study

Researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine are pioneering new ultrasound techniques that provide the first characterization of multidirectional blood flow in the heart. By focusing on fluid dynamics - specifically, the efficiency with which blood enters and exits the heart's left ventricle - the researchers believe they can detect heart disease even when traditional measures show no sign of trouble.
