An ultrasound probe holder is designed for use in the prostate brachytherapy procedure. The holder comprises a passive-jointed stabilizer that can be used to position, manipulate and lock in place the ultrasound probe, and a tracker mechanism to provide the position and orientation of the probe in 3D space. The information obtained from the integrated(More)
Bioartificial liver support provides a bridge to transplantation which is at present the only proven specific treatment for acute liver failure. In this paper, a novel multi-coaxial hollow fiber bioreactor so-called "Fibre-in-Fibre FIF Bioartificial liver device" with three compartments is experimentally and mathematically studied. The mathematical model in(More)
A mathematical model is developed to predict oxygen transfer in the fiber-in-fiber (FIF) bioartificial liver device. The model parameters are taken from the constructed and tested FIF modules. We extended the Krogh cylinder model by including one more zone for oxygen transfer. Cellular oxygen uptake was based on Michaelis-Menten kinetics. The effect of(More)
