This webinar of the VPHi Keynote Webinar Series featuring Assistant Professor Giulia Luraghi from Politecnico di Milano took place on Monday 11 September 2023 at 3pm CEST under the moderation of Anna Ramella, member of the VPHi Young Scientists Committee.
Currently, computer modeling and simulation are increasingly mentioned as technology to represent and predict well-defined quantitative clinical endpoints. Patient-specific modeling can be used to virtually replicate clinical procedures with different aims depending on the different contexts of use. In cardiovascular applications, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an example of a planned intervention to treat aortic valve disease, while intra-arterial thrombectomy (IAT) is an emergency intervention to treat acute ischemic stroke. In this webinar, patient-specific high-fidelity models of TAVI and IAT will be presented as pre-planning tools in the context of use of the single considered procedure.
Dr. Giulia Luraghi is currently Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) from 2022 where she is the leader of the Computational Biomechanics Laboratory – Cardiovascular division. She is also Affiliated Research fellow at the Department of Biomechanical Engineering, Delft University of Technology (Netherlands) since 2020. She is a member of the ESB and ESB-Italian chapter since 2017 and of the VPH society since 2020. She is author of 30 publications in peer- reviewed journals and more than 50 contributions to International and National Conferences. She won the best Thematic Presentation for an in silico model (ESB-ITA 2019) and the best VPHi Student Award for the oral presentation (VPH 2018).
This webinar is organised within the VPHi keynote webinar series, a quarterly event organized by the VPHi Young Scientists Committee that provides a forum for access to senior community members and their expert competence for chiefly young scientists, but also to the VPH community as a whole.
