Learning objectives
After passing the course, the student has insight in:
  1. Written communication and can apply this when writing a self-study and a report.
  2. Collaboration with other students and can apply this when together creating a joint groups product.
  3. Reflection on own work and the work of others in the form of peer review and processing intermediate feedback on a draft product.
  4. Making time schedules when planning to work towards a predefined deadline.
  5. Verbal presentations and applies this during meetings and group work.
  6. Ways of searching for and dealing with scientific information by means of individually looking up information and using this information for the final product.
After passing the course, the student is able to:
  1. Apply knowledge of measurement setups and protocols when designing a setup and protocol (taking into account the specific problems when experimenting with biological tissue)
  2. Apply and integrate knowledge of mechanics and measurement errors when analyzing and interpreting the experiments on a blood vessel and a technical laboratory model of such a vessel.
Content
  • Experiments with a silicon model of a blood vessel and a real vessel
  • Error propagation and statistical analysis
  • Working with biological tissue
  • Written report, objective description versus interpretation

Short promotional description of the course
Klinische metingen zijn vaak niet-invasief, indirect, en onderhevig aan meetfouten. Ingenieurs spelen een belangrijke rol in de ontwikkeling van klinische meetmethoden en de interpretatie van klinische data, rekening houdend met de betrouwbaarheid ervan. In deze casus worden methoden onderzocht om de toestand van de vaatwand te karakteriseren. De methoden worden eerst toegepast op een technisch laboratoriummodel van een vat en vervolgens op een arteria carotis van een slachthuisvarken.
Short promotional description of the course
Clinical measurements are often non invasive, indirect and subject to measurement errors. Engineers play an important role in the development of measurement techniques and the interpretation of the clinical data, accounting for the reliability of the data. In this project methods to characterise the state of the vessel wall are investigated. The methods are first applied to a technical laboratory vessel model and subsequently to the carotid artery of a slaughterhous pig.
