DPU - Symposium 2022

Medica l Image Ana lysis & Ar t i f icia l Intel l igence Symposium 2022 Nr. 4: Ass.-Prof. Dr. Sepideh Hatamikia: 3D printed silicone phantoms with controllable MRI signal properties Curriculum Vitae: Ass.-Prof. Dr. Sepideh Hatamikia completed her PhD and also a postdoctoral position in biomedical engineering field at Medical University of Vienna at the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at the Digital Image Processing Laboratory. Since march 2022, she joined Danube Private University (DPU) and currently she is the Head of Computational Imaging in the Medical Image Analysis and Artificial Intelligence (MIAAI) research group. In addition, Ass.-Prof. Dr. Hatamikia is a researcher at Austrian Center for Medical Innovation and Technology (ACMIT) since January 2018 and continues collaboration with this research center on different research projects. Abstract: 3D printed silicone phantoms with controllable MRI signal properties Abstract: Selection of materials for development of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) phantoms is always very challenging. So far, mainly gel-based or water-filled compartments have been used for MRI phantoms. 3D printing is a promising approach which allows manufacturing potential materials with controllable MRI signal properties to mimic geometric structures and lesion heterogeneities. The aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using extrusion 3D printed silicone materials to mimic human tissue and its range of relaxation times on MRI.
