Hosted by Wyss Core Faculty David R. Walt, PhD, Diagnostics Grand Rounds brings clinicians with unmet needs to the Wyss Institute. The goal of these sessions is to inform technology developers about important clinical problems that can help them direct their technology development efforts. Presenters are asked to identify diagnostic needs that will have an impact on the quality of care they deliver.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot forms in a deep vein. Most times, when this clot travels to the lungs, patients develop a pulmonary embolism, causing severe health complications and threatening their lives. During this talk, Dr. Bueno and Dr. Battinelli will discuss the pressing need for early diagnostics that will benefit both patients and physicians.
