MU researcher Ajit Tharakan has developed a camera that can see blood flow during surgeries for coronary artery bypass grafting. The camera makes it easier for doctors to know when blood flow in the new artery is restored before they close the patient's chest. The Near Infrared Navigation System, or NAVI, was created by Raghuraman Kannan, an associate professor in the departments of Radiology and Bioengineering, and Tharakan. It is among five biomedical projects awarded a portion of about $500,000 in grants to help speed up their paths from lab to market.
