In living donor liver transplantation, the volume of the potential graft must be measured to ensure sufficient liver function after surgery. Couinaud divided the liver into 8 functionally independent segments. However, this method is not simple to perform in 3D space directly. Thus, we propose a rapid method to segment the liver based on the hepatic vessel(More)
In this letter, the authors report a system for magnetic manipulation of ferrofluid droplets and their dynamic behavior. The magnetic field was generated by an array of planar coils, which were fabricated on a double-sided printed circuit board ͑PCB͒. The permanent magnetic moment of the ferrofluid droplet was created by the field of a pair of permanent(More)
This paper presents the development and validation of a new parallel unstructured multi-grid preconditioned implicit method for the simulation of three-dimensional (3D) unsteady compressible flows using a so-called immersed membrane method (IMM) An immersed membrane method for simulation of fluid–structure interaction in bio-fluid flows, in: 1st(More)
This study reports improved electrokinetically driven microfluidic T-mixers to enhance their mixing efficiency. Enhancement of electrokinetic microfluidic T-mixers is achieved using (i) an active approach of utilizing a pulsating EOF, and (ii) a passive approach of using the channel geometry effect with patterned blocks. PDMS-based electrokinetic T-mixers(More)
Liver segmentation is the fundamental step in computer-aided liver disease diagnosis and surgery planning. In this study, we developed a fully automatic liver extraction scheme based on an adaptive fast marching method (FMM). Firstly, a thresholding operation was applied to remove the ribs, spines and kidneys. Followed by a smooth filter for noise(More)
We have demonstrated a transient micro particle image velocimetry (micro-PIV) technique to measure the temporal development of electroosmotic flow in microchannels. Synchronization of different trigger signals for the laser, the CCD camera, and the high-voltage switch makes this measurement possible with a conventional micro-PIV setup. Using the transient(More)
This paper theoretically and experimentally investigates a micromixer based on combined hydrodynamic focusing and time-interleaved segmentation. Both hydrodynamic focusing and time-interleaved segmentation are used in the present study to reduce mixing path, to shorten mixing time, and to enhance mixing quality. While hydrodynamic focusing reduces the(More)
The electroosmotic flow through an annulus is analyzed under the situation when the two cylindrical walls carry high zeta potentials. The analytical solutions for the electric potential profile and the electroosmotic flow field in the annulus are obtained by solving the Poisson-Boltzmann equation and the Stokes equation under an analytical scheme for the(More)
In order to study the mechanism of the aqueous humor circulation and its relationship to the glaucoma macroscopically with engineering methods, a dynamistic model was presented, which can be used to simulate the situation and the treatment of the primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). The frame of the model was built based on the ophthalmically accepted(More)
