Louisiana State University 3D prints full-body ‘human’ for radiotherapy

Meagan Moore, a Biological and Agricultural Engineering student from Louisiana State University (LSU) has 3D printed a full-size model of the human body for use in radiotherapy. Such models used in radiotherapy mimic the human tissue, and in medical terms are known as imaging phantoms or phantoms. They are used in radiotherapy to estimate the amount […]

3D printed head helps University of Pittsburgh improve MRI scanning

Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering, are proposing the use of 3D printed phantom heads for MRI testing. The artificial models are designed to take the place of humans in the analysis and calibration of MRI equipment. Data collected from the process can be used to determine, among other things, whether certain […]

$1 Million Förderung für Forschung an Nuklear-Komponenten

1 Million Förderung für Forschung an Nuklear Komponenten2 - $1 Million Förderung für Forschung an Nuklear-Komponenten

Im Rahmen des Programms für nukleare Energieerzeugungstechnologien (NEET) des US-Energieministeriums erhielt ein Forscher-Team der Swanson School of Engineering eine Förderung in Höhe von 1 Million Dollar, um Kernkraftwerkskomponenten mit additiver Fertigung zu entwickeln sowie zu realisieren. Eine der größten Herausforderungen bei der Verwendung additiver Fertigungsprozesse sind Stützstrukturen. Grundsätzlich stellen diese die strukturelle Integrität der Komponente [...]
