Last week, Monica Emendi, ESR11 of the MeDiTATe project successfully defended her PhD thesis at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.  The title of her presentation was “Toward an updated aortic 3D map during EVAR: experimental and computational studies”.

Monica demonstrated how the combination of tracking technology and Finite Element Analysis (FEM), can significantly enhance the image fusion during Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR). The main advantage of the proposed approach is the unprecedented synergy between tracking technology and FEM, aiming to improve the accuracy and efficiency of EVAR procedures. This unique combination has not been explored before for this purpose, marking a breakthrough in the field.

Congratulations Monica! 🎓
