4D flow imaging as a predictive tool for aortic disease

4D flow magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has the potential to identify patients with a higher risk of severe complications from aortic degeneration Northwestern Medicine study published. The study employed a new 4D flow MRI heatmap concept to detect abnormal aortic wall shear stress, a known stimulus for arterial wall dysfunction.

This publication showcases data to validate 4D flow imaging as a clinical predictive tool for bicuspid aortopathy. Clinicians can use this imaging tool and biomarker to help be more precise about prophylactic aortic resection.
