Apricot, an advanced coronary artery assessment tool developed by a team of researchers from The University of Western Australia and the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, won the Rio Tinto Emerging Innovation category.

The tool aims to provide new information to the cardiologist when treating a patient during catheterisation theatre, known as the Cath Lab, where procedures such as stenting are carried out.

The new information combines the anatomical data that they can see on the images, with engineering-based information that they cannot see, to give a better idea of how to treat the patient.
