Poster #27: Michael Keyser – Investigating Curvature Induced Circumferential Drifts to Improve the 3D Reconstruction of a Deployed Stent

Faculty mentor: Lucas Timmins

Coronary heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. It is caused by a buildup of plaque in the arteries. Stents are frequently used to reopen blocked arteries. Stent failure is possible, and an accurate 3D reconstruction of a deployed stent can further understanding of how a stent interacts with its environment. In this project, I explain an existing framework for a 3D reconstruction and discuss how the curvature of an artery affects the 3D reconstruction.
