BME Senior Design Team Focuses on Ultrasound Project
BME seniors help real-life customers solve biomedical engineering problems through the two-semester Senior Design course taught by RCBU member Amy Lerner and Scott Seidman. In the 2014-2015 academic year, one team of BME seniors is embarking on a project to develop an ultrasound-based technique to detect dentinal cracks in teeth. The team will focus on detection of cracks in mandibular molars, as these are the teeth that exhibit cracks often. The senior design team consists of BME students Alexa Kuenstler, Jonathan Macoskey, Jacob Hyatt, Tek Gautum, and Jenny Won. Long-standing RCBU member Robert Lerner, MD who serves as the customer for this project brought the problem to the team. Diane Dalecki, Ph.D. is the senior design team supervisor for this project.
