Computational modeling is an excellent tool with which to investigate the mechanics of the aortic heart valve. The setting of the heart valve presents complex dynamics and mechanical behavior in which solid structures interact with a fluid domain. There currently exists no standard approach, a variety of strategies have been used to address the different(More)
Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) shows promise for medical imaging, particularly in angiography of patients with chronic kidney disease. As the first biomedical imaging technique that truly depends on nanoscale materials properties, MPI requires highly optimized magnetic nanoparticle tracers to generate quality images. Until now, researchers have relied on(More)
Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is a new imaging modality that noninvasively images the spatial distribution of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIOs). MPI has demonstrated high contrast and zero attenuation with depth, and MPI promises superior safety compared to current angiography methods, X-ray, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance(More)

Magnetic particle imaging is an emerging imaging modality that uses a magnetic field gradient to spatially localize a magnetic nanoparticle tracer. This technology shows great promise in clinical applications, as it has great sensitivity and contrast without any radiation. Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is an emerging medical imaging modality that is(More)
