The USDA has approved the use of novel computer software developed at Henry Ford Health System to aid cardiologists performing mitral valve procedures. A pioneer in cardiac imaging, Henry Ford Health System’s Dr. Wang developed the technology in conjunction with Henry Ford Innovations and experts at Belgium-based Materialise, a 3D printing software and solutions company. The software evaluates the patient’s anatomy inside the heart to avoid the risky complication called ‘Left Ventricular Outflow Track’ (LVOT) obstruction, a lethal blockage of blood flow.
