IFG26 – Statistical Physics Days

26th Statistical Physics Days were held in İzmir Institute of Technology.

During the program organization, Prof. Nejat Bulut’s dedication and careful attention to every detail was so amazing that it will be a very nice experience in my mind.

It was an honor to be among the successful physicist academicians and to listen to their work. It was also my chance that I had the opportunity to talk about my own practice and find the opportunity to discuss it with very precious professors.

Voksel 3D Surgical Planning with Simpleware

We depicted a live- surgical planning scenario with Prof. Erbil Oğuz and Kerem Girgin in Voksel 3D event. We used Simpleware for image processing, segmentation and designing.

VOKSEL 3D Event in Istanbul

Voksel’s Anatomical Modeling, Surgical Planning, 3D Printing with Engineer – Surgeon Collaboration Training‘ was held on 23rd February in Istanbul.

I had the chance to share my experiences in image processing and modeling with the participants. I would like to thank Kerem Girgin, Erbil Oğuz, Samet Serbest and Cansu Çeltik from Voksel. It was great to be a part of Voksel team, and meeting with the participants who were aware of the benefits of interdisciplinary collaborations and patient-specific planning very well.

ISO 13485:2016 Medical Devices Quality management Systems Requirements Training

I would like to thank Kemal Tekin for two fruitful days on ISO 13485:2016 Medical Devices Quality management Systems Requirements Training in British Standarts Institution.

Liquid State Physics in Turkey

22. Liquid State Symposium (22. Sıvı Hal Senpozyumu) took place on 7th December 2018 in Piri Reis University.
It was very proud to be together with the physicist academics I knew and admired since my undergraduate years.
I find myself lucky to see the Prof. Zehra Akdeniz that I have always admired and exemplified. I could finally meet Prof. Nihat Berker who is not only a famous physicist but also an intellectual on comparative literature readings.

Thanks to Dr. Ozan Sarıyer and Dr. Gulsen Evingur for organizing this meeting.

Prof Pekkan presented biological flow researches of his lab, and I presented a sample case of a pediatric aortic blood flow comparison study which is done with the great help of Dr. Ece Salihoglu.

Simulate the Physiology & Understand the Pathology

.

Computational Life is a young company which has the specialty on computational flow simulations and mathematical models for the medical technology field.

The validated software Digital Avatar Platform (DAP) of Computational Life is modeling human and animal body mathematically. It is testing physiological scenarios for drugs, medical devices and treatment methods.

Circulation system, cerebrospinal fluids, transport of pharmaceutical products throughout the body can be simulated for the human and animal body with DAP. It can also be modified due to the experiment.

They replied to me with a very warm and energetic mood when I wrote them. It is great that there are enthusiastic people in the medical technology field. I am sure that I will hear more about the news of Computational Life in the next days.

Thanks to Christian Contarino, Davide Chieco and Carlo Rivis for their innovative platform which brings a great help for clinicians, researchers, and engineers.

Velocity Contours in Iso-Surfaces for The Re-Stenosed Pulmonary Artery

The entrance lenght parts of the inlet and outlet sections are only used for calculation process.

Wall Shear Stress

Pediatric re-stenosed pulmonary artery model is depicted with marked points of unstable wall shear stress (WSS) which brings about the thinner layers by platelets. This means the loss of smooth muscle cells and remodeling risk. Sudden bends and tapering in the geometry induces high velocity gradients and high wall shear stress.

NAFEMS European Conference on Multiphysics Simulation 2018

11th & 12th October 2018
Budapest, Hungary

Technology is changing faster than ever. Global megatrends – such as digitalization, resource scarcity, and the need for renewable energy – drive the demand for innovation and efficient product development. In today’s world of almost limitless computing power, numerical simulations need to be both accessible and accurate in order to enable innovation.

NAFEMS are pleased to announce the fourth European Conference on Multiphysics simulations in October 2018. It will cover the use of Multiphysics simulations in industry.

Optimizing your workflow in the Mimics Innovation Suite

The Mimics Innovation Suite (MIS) allows you to automate your workflows, potentially saving a lot of time, achieving more consistency, and reducing repetitive work and human error. That is an easy thing to say, but if you do not have much experience with scripting, we all know that it can be tough to get started. If you want to speed up your learning curve and get a head start, then this could be an interesting training for you.

Topics will include:

Basics of Optimizing your Workflow in Mimics 21 and 3-matic 13
How to write your first scripts
Introduction to Python
Hands-on training exercises for creating planning workflows (e.g. loading datasets, performing basic segmentation steps, landmarking, creating anatomical coordinate systems, designing custom implants)

CERTIFICATED ANSYS DISCOVERY LIVE ’3D Modeling, Design & Simulation in real time’

Simscale Certification

Thanks to Anna Flessner and Milad Mafi for the certificate, excellent training documents and lectures. #Simscale

The workshop was including the simulations of

1- Hip Joint Prosthesis and comparison of different materials with displacements

2- Stent Design and Comparison of different materials and different balloon pressures

3- Comparison of different stenosis persentages in carotid artery samples by CFD

Carol Malnati

“- I wanted to be someone that encouraged young women to get involved in math, science, and engineering.”

Today, she’s doing just that.

As a product development engineer in the Medtronic cardiovascular division, Carol has been doing what she loves for more than 25 years. She provided critical technical expertise for the company’s first implantable cardioverter defibrillator and continues to collaborate with engineering teams and physicians to find new ways of doing things.

But on top of her day job, she has taken on another commitment – overseeing the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Initiative at the company.

Beginning in the spring of 2017, Medtronic introduced another opportunity that taps into an often overlooked talent pool.  Careers 2.0 is a “returnship” program designed to provide paid internships for female engineers looking to get back into STEM-related careers. Research suggests close to 25 percent of women in engineering careers leave the industry by age 30, citing work culture or family commitments.

“This is a way to bring these talented women back into our technical and managerial ranks,” says Carol. “We are very excited about providing this amazing pool of talent an opportunity at Medtronic.”

“Overall, I want to inspire women,” says Carol. “Whatever your passion is; clean air, fighting hunger, or improving healthcare. Behind the biggest challenges of humanity, there’s an engineer working to find a solution.”
