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/

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.

3D Printing for Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeons

Having worked in product development for the past few years, Dr. Enrique Garcia had seen what 3D printers were capable of and began investigating the possibilities for creating models for pediatric cardiologists to use before an operation. She began by asking surgeons from around the country what they thought of the idea. To say that their response was overwhelmingly positive is an understatement. The value of this idea was immediately apparent.

?Pediatric heart surgery is the hardest thing that I can imagine a person doing. A surgeon doesn?t know what he?s going to see until he opens a child?s chest. Every heart is different and every cardiopathy is different,? said Garcia. ?A baby?s heart is the size of a walnut, and surgeons need to go in and move around structures that are as small and thin as a human hair; and they?re doing it with their own two hands. And all of this is occurring against a ticking clock.?

?Having something in your hands, and being able to turn it any way you want, and to be able to cut and open it up and see the inside; and to be able to physically hold it, to feel it, is something that can?t be replicated in a computer.?

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.

Congratulations Dr. Fırat Altın

I am very proud to announce that a friend of me is selected for The Medical Doctor of The Year Award in Istanbul.

He is not only a surgeon at the department of pediatric surgery of İstanbul Mehmet Akif Ersoy Chest & Cardiovascular Surgery Training & Research Hospital but also a PhD candidate at biomedical engineering and a collaborator of some interdisciplinary studies as surgical planning and computational blood flow dynamics.

Congratulations Dr. Altın!
