Graduate Research Education is pleased to report that Dr Dennis Wong has fulfilled the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Medicine (unsupervised).
The thesis titled: "Novel techniques for assessment of functional significance of coronary artery stenoses by coronary angiography and cardiac computed tomography" was ratified by the Graduate Research Steering Committee on Tuesday 12th April 2016 and will be conferred upon graduation.
Dr Wong presented the ability of coronary angiography and MSCT imaging in evaluating functional significance of coronary artery stenosis in patients with coronary atherosclerosis.
According to his supervisors, Dr Wong elucidated applicability of original scoring method as well as MSCT-derived measures of cardiac ischemia in the clinical settings. His thesis provides a nice overview of MSCT imaging to visualize coronary atherosclerosis and assess functional significance of coronary artery stenosis. In addition, Dr Wong describes a variety of findings showing the advantage of coronary angiographic and MSCT assessment of coronary artery stenosis.
