Mission and Major Research Interests

Dr. Jon Matsumura’s Aortic Imaging Lab performs an independent analysis of radiographic imaging involving different pathophysiology of the aorta including aneurysms, dissections, and traumatic aortic injury. Currently AortaCore provides pre and post-operative image interpretation and analysis for multi-center, prospective clinical research trials determining the safety and efficacy of medical treatments for aortic aneurysm and endovascular repair of aortic dissection, descending thoracic aortic aneurysms, and traumatic transections.

AortaCore uses advance technology to provide objective processing of imaging data received as part of these clinical research trials. AortaCore provides protocol-defined image processing. Specifically we assess images for change in aortic anatomy as a result of treatment, device performance, and measuring parameters such as diameter and volume.

Dr. Matsumura is also currently involved in multiple ongoing clinical trials involving treatment of patients with vascular diseases. His clinical area of expertise involves advanced percutaneous endovascular interventions for carotid stenosis, aortic aneurysm, aortic dissection, and peripheral artery disease.
