3-D heart model library grows at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (KJZZ radio news)
The 3-D Cardiac Print Lab is aiding Phoenix Children’s Hospital in effectively treating congenital heart defects. The lab is producing 3-D models that provide anatomically precise depictions of patient’s hearts, which help physicians map various surgical strategies based on each individual’s specific condition. The lab’s capabilities are the result of processes developed by Arizona State University bioengineers David Frakes and Justin Ryan. Frakes is an associate professor in the School of Biological and Heath Systems Engineering and the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. Ryan is a biomedical engineering doctoral student. KJZZ, a National Public Radio affiliate, reported on the potential their work has to significantly improve cardiac care. Listen to the broadcast report (transcript available)

ASU Center for Embedded Systems researchers featured (Embedded Computing Design magazine)
Embedded Computing Design magazine is a leading news publication for engineers, architects and computer scientists working on the materials, software and design strategies for embedded devices. Such devices are components of embedded systems, consisting of networks of interacting computing components that together make up the control systems for much modern technology. In the past several months the magazine has featured the work of several researchers in the Center for Embedded Systems in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decisions Systems Engineering, one of ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Articles focus on research being done by professors Sarma Vruhula and Karam Chatha, associate professor Aviral Shrivastava, and assistant professors Georgios Fainekos and Carole-Jean Wu. Find links to the articles on the Center for Embedded Systems website
