This is very frustrating. I have the chance to travel quite a bit and meet with numerous medical partners —academic leaders, industrial experts, thought leaders and medical device executives. Many of them are as passionate as I am about using simulation to accelerate the pace of innovation for medical device and pharmaceutical solutions. Yet, most of them are amazed when I show them some of the achievements of their peers. Some simply didn’t know that this application or model was possible to simulate or didn’t know how to do it .If all of them would share great results in their areas of expertise then everyone could learn and benefit.
This is not acceptable for an industry where our pace of innovation means better comfort, less pain or perhaps survival for the patient!
Since the early summer we have been sharing knowledge and expertise during our monthly healthcare webinar. Every second Tuesday of the month at 8 a.m Pacific, 11 a.m. Eastern, 4 p.m. in the U.K. or 5 p.m. in Continental Europe ANSYS healthcare experts and customers share their experiences, tips and tricks, achievements and successfully modeled new applications. We all have one goal: help each and every one of us to obtain more and faster benefits from engineering simulation. In recent webinars:
• Prof Javad Hazrati from TU/e discussed prediction of bone failure;
• Jan Debacker, CEO of FLUIDDA described how to use CFD to reduce clinical trials;
• Rebecca Dilthey, ANSYS SpaceClaim, introduced SpaceClaim for the healthcare industry.
On September 8, Professors Dubini and Migliavacca from Politecnico di Milano, will present cardiovascular system modeling for pediatric patients.
