MRI Fat Quantification Phantom Client: Dr. Scott B Reeder Medical Physics and Radiology Phone: (608) – 265-9964 Email: [email protected] Dr. Walter F Block Biomedical Engineering and Electrical Engineering Phone: (608) 265-9686 Email: [email protected] Catherine D G Hines Radiology Phone: (608) 265 – 9688 Email: [email protected] Team: Bogdan Dzyubak (Team Leader) Joe Helfenberger (BSAC) Nick Balge (BWIG) Matt Parlato (Communicator) Progress Report for October 29 – November 5 Problem Statement: The goal of this project is to develop an MRI phantom for the quantification of fat. This phantom will be used to test MRI techniques developed by the client for the imaging of fat in vivo. The phantom must contain samples of known physiologically relevant quantities of fat. The eventual purpose is quality control of MRI scanners that use fat-water contrast imaging. This Week’s Goals: o Schedule a working time in the machine shop and, if possible, make the honeycomb o If the rest of the materials arrive, begin mixing the solutions o If enough materials arrive and progress is made, meet with the client to report this and discuss future progress o Put together a draft of the reportThis Week’s Accomplishments: o Met with Gary Frank to ask about the shop/tool availability, receive comments on the final design, as well as ask about the availability/necessity of a CNC  We can come to the shop whenever equipment is available and he is there to supervise us; any work day should be fine  Gary Frank has a drill press available but no metric drill bits; we need to find a 21-22 mm bit  A CNC should not be used because any accuracy achieved will be dwarfed by imprecision from drilling UHMWPE as it melts very easily  Due to the plastic’s malleability, separation between vials should be relatively large. We will thus use 16 instead of 25 vials to improve structural integrity o The machine shop at ECB does not check out drill bits. We will need to receive shop certification use them o Catherine confirmed the receipt of emulsion supplies late in the week; we have not yet began mixing the solutions o We have submitted a draft of the report for review by Dr. Chesler; more work is being done on it meanwhile o People have been allocated to work in groups: Bogdan and Matt on the honeycomb, Joe and Nick on the emulsions Next Week’s Goals: o Begin manufacturing the honeycomb o Begin measuring concentrations of fat/water fractions and making the emulsions Project Difficulties: o Gaining access to the correct size drill press bit.Team Activities Date Members Activity Time Spent 10/29/09 Nick Working on the report 4 hr 10/29/09 Nick Working on the report 2 hr 10/29/09 Matt, Joe Working on the report 2.5 hr 10/29/09 Bogdan Working on the report 1.5 hr 10/29/09 Joe Working on the report 1 hr 10/29/09 Matt Talking to machine shop people 1 hr 10/29/09 Bogdan Meeting with Gary Frank 1.5 hr 10/31/09 Nick, Bogdan, Matt Working on the report 2 hr 11/02/09 Matt Working on the report 1.25 hr 11/02/09 Matt Communication 0.75 hr 11/04/09 Matt Working on the report 2 hr 11/03/09 Joe Solidworks model 2 hr 11/05/09 Matt Working on the report 2 hr 11/05/09 Bogdan Working on the report 2 hr 11/05/09 Bogdan Progress report 0.5 hr Project Schedule Task September October November December 3 10 17 24 1 8 15 22 29 7 14 21 28 5 12 17 Project Development Research Brainstorm/Design Development Finalize Design Prototyping Order Supplies Deliverables Progress Reports Mid-semester Presentation (10/16) * Writing Final Report Final Report (12/11) * Final Poster (12/4) * Meetings Client Advisor Website Online * = deliverable dueFuture Timeline Task October November December __ 7 14 21 28 5 12 Project Development Brainstorm/Design Development Finalize Design Prototyping Testing Order Supplies Deliverables Draft Paper Finalize Paper Prepare Poster Submit Paper (12/11) * Present Poster (12/4) * Expenses Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethelene (UHMWPE) - $43.75 Clear Glass Vials - $83.72 Animal Hide Gel – $26.71 Ivory Hand Soap – $8 Formaldehyde – $23.01 Acrylic Tank (Lock & Lock Box) – $9.99 Safflower Oil - $6.99 Total:
