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.

3D Intracardiac Models for Surgical Planning

In multidisciplinary areas, it is very important to be able to meet with the team who can work in harmony.

For his work on 3D intracardiac models on surgical planning,  Thanks to cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Okan Yildiz, we have been informed about and contributed to many pediatric cases and treatments since 2016.

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)

Utrecht Medical Center / TGA Symposium

The 5th ‘The Utrecht Sessions’ for Congenital Heart Disease

The Utrecht Sessions for Congenital Heart Disease was held at the University Medical Center Utrecht on 8-10 February. It was one of the best organized meetings I’ve ever attended.

I had the chance to listen to the work of the most successful pediatric cardiologists and surgeons in the field and to learn a lot about TGA.

I would like to thank Heynric Grotenhuis for the courtesy and help in the pre-seminar correspondence. And I would like to thank Gregor Krings for his support to share my work and to inspirational favour to interdisciplinary research.

I am delighted to have the chance to meet Gregor Krings, Heynric Grotenhuis, Tjark Ebels, Mario Carminati, Tara Bharucha , Petru Liuba, Virpe Puska and Ghadeera Almansoori.
