DFCon & SVESS Successfully Illuminate Limb Preservation on an International Stage in Singapore #ActAgainstAmputation #DFCon #ALPSlimb

This just published on the ALPS site. Singapore — In a groundbreaking collaboration that took place on August 27th, the American Limb Preservation Society (ALPS) with its Diabetic Foot Conference (DFCon) partnered with the Society of Vascular and Endovascular Surgeons of Singapore (SVESS) to shine a spotlight on the critical issue of limb preservation. This... Continue Reading →

Combined evaluation of blood flow and tissue perfusion in diabetic feet by intra-arterial dynamic 4DCT imaging #ActAgainstAmputation #DiabeticFoot #Radiology

Fascinating continued work from our Belgian colleagues. Critical limb ischemia is associated with high mortality and major amputations. Intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (IADSA) has been the reference standard but has some shortcomings including the two-dimensional projection and the lack of tissue perfusion information. The aim of this exploratory study is to examine four-dimensional computed tomography... Continue Reading →

These wide-ranging lectures, chaired by Associate Prof. Mehmet Dokmeci, have covered topics throughout biomedical engineering and therapeutics. It was the first time that the institute featured a podiatric surgeon focusing primarily on tissue repair,... Continue Reading →

Stratification of Microvascular Disease Severity in the Foot Using Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging

Work from our combined UofA and USC team with our colleagues at Modulim. Samuel Jett 1, Mallory R Thompson 2, Shubhangi Awasthi 2, David J Cuccia 1, Tze-Woei Tan 2, David G Armstrong 3, Amaan Mazhar 1, Craig C Weinkauf 2 Background: Microvascular disease (MVD) describes systemic changes in the small vessels (~100 um diameter) that impair tissue oxygenation and perfusion. MVD is a common but poorly monitored complication of diabetes.... Continue Reading →
