Computational fluid dynamic model using Proper Orthogonal Decomposition-Technique to Simulate Pressure Drop across Coronary Stenosis
The purpose of this trial is to establish reliable and validated computational model to assess the functional significance of coronary stenosis using coronary angiography (a procedure that uses a special dye and x-rays to see how blood flows through the arteries in one's heart).
This research study is led by Dr. Amir Lotfi.
