Mahdieh Babaiasl Attended 2019 Academic Showcase at WSU

Mahdieh Babaiasl Attended 2019 Academic Showcase at WSU

Mahdieh Babaiasl participated in the annual 2019 Research Expo held by Washington State University. At this Expo, Researchers present their research to the general public and researchers from different disciplines. In this event, Mahdieh presented her research on Waterjet Steerable Needles that received quite an attention from the audience. Poster of the Event: Abstract of the Proposal: Water-jet technology has recently been used in medical applications such as surgery for dissection of organs, dentistry, bone cutting, and wound debridement. Measuring, and controlling the depth of cut of the waterjet is important for medical applications. For example, in surgical applications using…

Mahdieh Babaiasl Was Chosen to Represent MME Department at WSU’s 3 Minute Research Competition

Mahdieh Babaiasl has been chosen to represent the Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department at WSU's 2019 3 minute research competition. The abstract of the proposal for the competition is as follows: Water-jet technology has recently been used in medical applications such as surgery for dissection of organs, dentistry, bone cutting, and wound debridement. Measuring, and controlling the depth of cut of the waterjet is important for medical applications. For example, in surgical applications using water-jet, selective cutting is a must, and water-jet should cut the desired layer and should not go further, and this requirement dictates a predictive model for…

WSU INSIDER Featured Mahdieh Babaiasl

WSU INSIDER Featured Mahdieh Babaiasl

WSU INSIDER featured Mahdieh Babaiasl's research on Fracture-directed Waterjet Steerable Needles. The featured article is titled "Cutting-edge needles promise more accuracy in medical procedures" and interviewed graduate students Mahdieh Babaiasl and Fan Yang who conduct research on Steerable Needles under the supervision of Dr. John Swensen. The researchers, including John Swensen and graduate students Mahdieh Babaiasl and Fan Yang, test their waterjet-based, steerable needles that could improve accuracy and control and reduce tissue damage for many common, non-invasive medical procedures.

Mahdieh Babaiasl Featured on DailyEvergreen

Mahdieh Babaiasl is featured in an article entitled "Researchers develop new needle" on the DailyEvergreen. In this interview, she talked about her research on waterjet steerable needles in which the direction of the tissue fracture is controlled by an angled waterjet nozzle with the subsequent following of the superelastic needle. Continuing this process will lead to steering the needle to the target. To read more please click HERE!

Waterjet Steerable Needles’ Abstract Published in WSU’s Website

Waterjet Steerable Needles’ Abstract Published in WSU’s Website

Our abstract entitled "Waterjet Steerable Needles: a New Promise for Improving Medical Procedures" about waterjet steerable needles is accepted for WSU's this year Academic Showcase, but the actual event is not held because of the outbreak of the COVID-19. Mahdieh Babaiasl and Fan Yang are presenters of this abstract under the supervision of Dr. John Swensen. Abstract of the Waterjet Steerable Needle Steerable needles are a type of medical device that can steer around obstacles to reach a target location within patient anatomy and thus can improve the accuracy of medical procedures. The radius of curvature is an important parameter…
