Surgical Mesh Model (Model Image)
Bio-optics systems are not limited to light-tissue interactions, but also to interactions between light and biomedical devices. For instance, the mesh seen here is a stent used to maintain open air passages in certain patients. These meshes can become overgrown with tissue, and that tissue can reduce the air passage diameter, rendering the mesh useless for its original use. By removing this extra tissue using optical methods, the air passage can be reopened, but the mesh itself must be examined when planning for such a treatment. This type of problem can be examined using the tools and capabilities of the ASAP optical modeling software. Thanks to Dr. Claudio Sibata at the Brody School of Medicine for supplying the mesh for modeling.
