3D printing lowers risk and cost of testing FFR-CT

Published December 4, 2017

A team UB researchers were featured on Aunt Minnie, a community website for radiologists and related professionals in the medical imaging industry. The story quotes biomedical engineering PhD student Lauren Shepard, who said, "3D printing provides a unique solution for benchtop experimentation."

The story describes a proposal by UB researchers to use 3-D printing as a substitute for clinical trials for software validation. In addition to Shepard, other members of the research team include Ciprian "Chip" Ionita, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, Dr Vijay Iyer and Dr Michael Wilson, and Kelsey Sommer, a biomedical engineering undergraduate student.
