After coming back from Winter Break , I have focused on planning my visit to Dr. Karanian's Lab and reading further information on the cardiovascular stints he has been testing.  Other Medical Technology he has been investigating, including advanced scanning equitment (angiograms), has begun to revolutionize the procedure of preventining restonisis in the past 4 months or so and is leading to improved, more detailed images of aortal blockages.  Today I will be visiting his lab directly after school where I will have the chance to observe the implanation of several new devices in pigs to further test new structural designs of the stints.
