The MEMEnginy16 ‘ is an annual event at the engineering school at UAB.
This year will be held on Thursday April 28th.
Among the many activities organized for this day, the CVC will be showing a demo of a software tool that allows to plan an bronchoscopy intervention considering the characteristics and limitations of the used devices. Our simulation techniques have been applied in the fields of video games to play bronchoscope movements and physical interactions with the walls of the respiratory tree. Based on information from 3D scanner we have built a virtual environment where the doctor can experiment with a 3D model of the structure and to settle if the node is actually accessible during operation to develope a bronchial biopsy.
In this video we can see a simulation of a bronchoscopy using a 3D model of the bronchial tree.
