Printing cardiovascular components to aid in surgical planning

The UW Cardiovascular Fluid Dynamics Laboratory focuses its research on fluid dynamics analysis of physiological and pathological flows using a combination of medical imaging, additive manufacturing, and computational fluid dynamics. The results of the lab are used to develop improved diagnostic and surgical planning techniques through a collaboration with physicians.

Dr. Alejandro Roldán-Alzate discusses innovative medical research, as featured in the University of Wisconsin All Ways Forward campaign video.
