Taking the Guesswork out of Surgical Planning How BME professor Alberto Figueroa’s patient-specific blood flow simulations help clinicians find the ideal surgical path
Last summer, Alberto Figueroa’s BME lab achieved an important “first” – using computer-generated blood flow simulations to plan a complex cardiovascular procedure.
A team of researchers at the University of Michigan has developed a new, revolutionary technique that has the potential to reshape the practice of surgery.
University of Michigan researchers have used a “kidney on a chip” device to mimic the flow of medication through human kidneys and measure its effect on kidney cells.
