During peripheral intravascular interventions one of the main issues is the correct deployment of the guidewire (GW) to the anatomical site which has to be treated, often supported by a microcatheter. There is a trade-off between the microcatheter flexibility and its push-ability to be ... Read More
Numerical Study on Mechanical Properties of Stents with Different Materials during Stent Deployment with Balloon Expansion.
The main reason for stent implantation is to provide mechanical support to the arterial wall. So it is important to consider the different mechanical properties of different stent materials while studying the stent implant’s efficacy. The present study gives a comparative overview of ... Read More
Polymeric hydrogel is a promising class of drug delivery systems with the controlled release behavior in the body. In-situ forming hydrogels can be injected into the body as a fluid which forms a gel within the body tissue and improve the efficacy of the drugs. Various polymers have been ... Read More
Understanding the stress-strain behavior of human foot tissues and pressure map distributions at the plantar interface is of interest into biomechanical investigations. In particular, monitoring plantar pressure maps is crucial to establishing the perceived human comfort of shoe ... Read More
In this presentation, we study the modeling of physiology and muscoskeletal biomechanics using COMSOL. The outline for the presentation is in particular: * Why is COMSOL particularly powerful for modeling physiology? * Modeling soft tissues like cartilage * Optimization to determine ... Read More
Acoustic Field Comparison of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Using Experimental Characterization and Finite Element Simulation
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is used as a noninvasive technique of tissue heating and ablation for different medical treatments. This paper presents a quantitative comparison of HIFU acoustic fields experimentally obtained versus simulated acoustic fields. Acoustic field ... Read More
Comparing Isotropic and Anisotropic Brain Conductivity Modeling: Planning Optimal Depth-Electrode Placement in White Matter for Direct Stimulation Therapy in an Epileptic Circuit
The goal of our work was to calculate a patient-specific brain conductivity map for predicting the extent to which direct stimulation therapy can strategically propagate through pathological white matter. Our laboratory developed isotropic and anisotropic human brain finite element ... Read More
Although microwave heating has been studied in great detail, microwave combination heating has not. This work investigated this in a novel microwave combination system that heats the sample through a combination of microwaves and hot air. The study used a coupled electromagnetics ... Read More
Mathematical Modeling has a long history in developmental biology. Advances in experimental techniques and computational algorithms now permit the development of increasingly more realistic models of organogenesis. In particular, 3D geometries of developing organs have recently become ... Read More
When an electronic device is worn for extended periods, possibly in direct contact with human skin, heat must be safely transferred away from the device, without exceeding standards and regulatory temperature limits on the skin and on the exposed surfaces of the device. Heat transfer is ... Read More
