Atherosclerosis is a degenerative vascular disease that potentially leads to heart attack or stroke, the two most common causes of death in Western countries. In order to better understand the disease and select the most appropriate treatment for patients with atherosclerosis, cardiologists needed a more advanced modeling tool. The European Union (EU) funded the development of ”ARTreat,” a tool that assists cardiologists in determining whether pharmacological treatment or surgical intervention is the best course of action for their patients. A consortium of 18 companies participated in the final project development. TechnoLogica was charged with the responsibility of integrating all modules developed by the consortium into ARTreat and needed a way to deliver a functional solution efficiently.
TechnoLogica chose Infragistics WPF toolset to deliver components and controls for ARTreat. The tool targets providing a patient-specific computational model of the cardiovascular system, used to improve the quality of prediction for the atherosclerosis progression and propagation into life-threatening events that need to be treated accordingly.
Infragistics’ WPF toolset provided the following solutions for TechnoLogica:
- Multiple Document Interface (MDI)
- Input control of numeric data
- DateTime data input
- Data grid control
- Display of Examination
- Preview/Provide selection of images from a given set
- Display Charts
TechnoLogica was able to save countless development hours by using Infragistics UI controls instead of building WPF UI controls from scratch, allowing them to deliver a potentially life-saving product to their clients for testing quickly. ARTreat is currently in pilot testing and receiving positive feedback regarding user experience. The structural design of the tool allows cardiologists to dedicate less time in training on the use of ARTreat and more time saving patient lives.
