(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) Researchers established real-time ultrasonic monitoring of the blood’s aggregate state using the in vitro blood flow model. Based on collected data, computer automatically injected a thrombolytic drug if needed. As a result, the system was able to quickly and completely dissolve the forming blood clots. The team believes that their work will help open new prospects for the creation of wearable devices for timely medical assistance to patients with a high risk of thrombosis.
