How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Ultrasound-guided needle interventions are common procedures in medicine, and tissue-mimicking phantoms are widely used for simulation training to bridge the gap between theory and clinical practice in a controlled environment. This review assesses tissue-mimicking materials from 24 studies as candidates for a high-fidelity ultrasound phantom, incl...
Tissue-mimicking materials (TMMs) have been investigated and used for decades as imaging phantoms in various medical applications. They are designed and fabricated to replicate certain biological tissue characteristics, a process often dictated by the target application. Moreover, TMMs have been utilized in some medical procedural training requirin...
Poly (lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) is a biodegradable polymer that has been extensively used in various tissue engineering applications. In this study, the potential of using scaffolds made of fibrous PLGA films for skin reconstruction and drug delivery was investigated. The mechanical properties of the films, the short term release kinetics, th...
