In cooperation with the MR Research Centre at Aarhus University, SHUTE tested its mPOF sensors inside the arteries of a sedated pig to monitor the blood pressure intravascularly. Combining the good results of the MRI scanner compabilities with intravascular sensing, new doors open. Lab Manager, PhD, Esben S. S. Hansen af the MR Research Center says: "This opens up to a whole new application of intravascular sensing, and potentially sensing directly inside the heart and its vessels". He continues: "With the promising results from our last efforts we are quite hopeful that we can use the sensors to track the pressure and force of the heart while being inside the MRI scanner environment. We will continue testing these novel MRI compatible invasive sensors and look for the possibilities it brings". Read more about it here : 'Monitoring Blood Pressure Intravascularly'
