Hannover Medical School—one of the world’s leading university medical research centers—and SimScale are joining forces to offer a free online workshop series about the application of engineering simulation in biomedical applications.
The use of engineering simulation in the biomedical field facilitates allows for more tailored and patient-specific treatments for a wide range of diseases and medical conditions. As an example, it will be possible in the future to design customized heart valves with the help of computational simulations and identify complications based on a CT scan. The increasing adoption of simulation in healthcare and medicine will enable physicians to have patient-specific diagnostics and therapy, including biomedical devices, cardiovascular diseases treatment, and evaluating the performance of artificial organs.
During the SimScale Biomedical Engineering Workshop, participants will receive a hands-on introduction to the application of engineering simulation in biomechanics and medical sciences. Additionally, they will learn from top experts how to leverage the free, cloud-based SimScale simulation platform to virtually test, analyze, and optimize the designs of biomedical devices.
The three one-hour webinar sessions come with an optional homework assignment. There is no prior knowledge or software required to participate in this workshop series. All participants will get free access to SimScale by creating a SimScale account at www.simscale.com.
The live online sessions will take place on August 25, September 1, and September 8 at 5:00 p.m. CEST. All the registrants will receive a recorded version of the workshop, even if they cannot participate in the live sessions.
In the first session, we will talk about to the fundamentals of biomedical engineering. You will learn about the latest technological trends and how engineering simulation is being used today to improve individual diagnostics and therapy. We will also show you how to perform your first simulation of a biomedical device.
Stents are small expandable tubes used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body. During the second session, you will learn about the challenges and requirements of stent design in order to achieve maximum therapeutic success. Afterward, you will evaluate the behavior of a stent by running a simulation yourself.
In the last session, you will learn the fundamentals of the cardiovascular system and how prospective technologies based on simulation will help to treat widespread diseases. Finally, you will learn how to evaluate the dangers of vessel calcification with the aid of a fluid flow simulation.
Update: This webinar has ended, but you can still watch the recording here.
