Heart Flow

Using data from a standard CT scan, the non-invasive HeartFlow Analysis creates a personalized 3D model of the coronary arteries and analyzes the impact that blockages have on blood flow. See the website: http://www.heartflow.com/

I could have a chance to give a seminar about my research field at Istanbul Technical University.

Thanks to the faculty in The School of Physics Engineering for their sociable audience and fruitful discussions.

Special thanks to Özgür Akarsu and Sevtap Yildiz Özbek for the generous invitation and their kind hospitality.

20. National Liquid State Physics Symposium 16 December 2016

20. National Symposium on  Liquid State Physics was held in Piri Reis University.

The symposium was obtaining various studies about liquids as water and climate change, simulating strait systems, oceans, spin glass phases, liquid crystals, serum transferring,  swollen gells, GO composites, metals with  glass-like structure, super hidrophobic polistren and, biofluids {yes, this was mine ;) }.

It was an incontrovertible experience for me that i could meet new studies in the field and spend nameable times with  physics authors.

Many thanks to organizing comitee (especially to Gülşen Evingür) and Sevtap Yıldız Özbek.

The website of the symposium is here.

Windkessel plus colours ;)

I know why I’d rather CFD. Because it has colours. Windkessel analogy has not.

ICPT – GEFIK 2016

I had chance to present my works to authors and answer the questions of young curious physicisits at GEFIK2016 in Ege University. Discussing about medical physics and classical mechanics with physicists was a peerless experience.

‘Go with the flow’ by Victoria Stoll

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) announced the winners of its annual ?Reflections of Research? image competition, reflecting the charity?s research into heart and circulatory disease.
The winning image ? titled ?Go with the flow,? by Victoria Stoll, a BHF-funded researcher at the University of Oxford ? captures the blood flowing within an adult heart frozen in time. Blood flows within the main pumping chambers (ventricles) of the heart and the vessels leaving the heart. The blue flow is blood that lacks oxygen and is travelling to the lungs. The red flow is blood that has been through the lungs and received oxygen and is now ready to be pumped around the body.
Stoll is using this type of imaging, four-dimensional cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to look at the blood flow in four dimensions within the hearts of people with heart failure, whose hearts are not pumping effectively. She has already found that in people with severe heart failure the blood flows around the heart in a more disordered and disrupted pattern.

Anatomical Modeling & 3D Printing Meeting with 4C Medikal

PRINT THYSELF

This sort of procedure is becoming more and more common among doctors and medical researchers. Almost every day, I receive an e-mail from my hospital?s press office describing how yet another colleague is using a 3-D printer to create an intricately realistic surgical model?of a particular patient?s mitral valve, or finger, or optic nerve?to practice on before the actual operation. Surgeons are implanting 3-D-printed stents, prosthetics, and replacement segments of human skull. The exponents of 3-D printing contend that the technology is making manufacturing more democratic; the things we are choosing to print are becoming ever more personal and intimate. This appears to be even more true in medicine: increasingly, what we are printing is ourselves.

Hemodyn

Hemodyn, the first cardiovascular mechanics and surgical planning company of Turkey is taking place in StartUp Istanbul 2015.

Hemodyn is assisting the surgeons in the diagnosis and surgery planning of the congenital heart diseases in The Incubation Office of Koc University.

Hemodyn Team has always been an invariable place for my research vision. I want to thank to Kerem Pekkan, Şenol Pişkin and Volkan Tuncay by means of this event.

2015 North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging (NASCI) Conference

The North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging (NASCI) welcomes the submission of original abstracts for its 43rd Annual Meeting, September 26 ? September 29, 2015 at the Westin, San Diego via its online system. The NASCI 2015 Annual Meeting will showcase Oral Presentations, AHA Young Investigator Presentations (AHA Oral), and Educational Exhibits (Poster).

Scientific presentations are completed hypothesis-driven research with a comprehensive report; a work-in-progress report of ongoing research of emerging ideas and techniques and containing initial yet defined results; or a brief pertinent report of a particular new aspect or understanding of clinical radiology.

Young Investigator
The American Heart Association Council on Cardiovascular Radiology and Intervention (CVRI) will again sponsor the NASCI-AHA Young Investigator Awards.

Eligibility: All residents, postdoctoral students, medical students, and fellows are eligible.

Selection: Eight finalists will be selected and asked to orally present their papers at the Scientific Sessions. ONLY FIRST AUTHORS MAY PRESENT FOR YOUNG INVESTIGATOR SESSIONS.

Awards: All eight finalists receive two nights’ hotel accommodations at the Westin and will have the abstract published in full in the iJCVI. Travel and meeting registration costs are covered by the finalist. The three top presentations will receive an additional cash award. The 1st place presentation will receive an invitation to publish their work in the iJCVI with an expedited review by the Senior Associate Editor (although standard peer-review criteria for acceptance will apply). If accepted, this article will be noted as NASCI’s 1st place article in an Editorial written by the Senior Associate Editor.

NOTE: Those who submit as an AHA, but are not chosen as a finalist, will still be eligible to present their work as a non-AHA talk or poster.

Application details:

The presenter must be the first author of an accepted abstract.

Only Young Investigator submissions accepted for oral presentation will be considered for the American Heart Association – CVRI Young Investigator Awards.

The applicant must be a member of NASCI and CVRI.

A signed confirmation from the Program Director of the applicant?s In-Training status should be sent to the Society (FAX: 703-716-4487 or EMAIL: info@nasci.org) The applicant must apply before the MAY 19, 2015, 11:59 pm abstract deadline.
No more than two applicants from the same institution may be selected as a Young Investigator finalist. There is no limit to the number that may apply.

When submitting the abstract, please select “Yes” for the Young Investigator Awards/Travel Stipends Question.
The American Heart Association requires all applicants be an AHA CVRI (Cardiovascular Radiology and Intervention) Council member. If the applicant is not currently a member of the CVRI council, the CVRI Council will then pay the membership fee.

The Horizon for Mechanical Circulatory Support

Filmed at the 2014 STS Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, this roundtable discussion focuses on mechanical circulatory support. John Kern moderates the discussion with Pavan Atluri and Francis Pagani. The panelists discuss mechanical circulatory support, LVAD therapy, and heart transplantation. The discussion concludes with thoughts on the future of mechanical circulatory support.
