Sumário: Na última metade do século 20, o advento da Tomografia por Emissão de Positrões (PET) e da Ressonância Magnética Nuclear (RMN) revolucionaram a imagem médica in vivo.

A PET tornou-se uma valiosa ferramenta de investigação tendo migrado rapidamente para a clínica, sendo sido seguida pela RMN alguns anos depois.

11th WBME - Workshop on Biomedical Engineering

This annual Workshop aims to expose students, engineers and scientists to recent developments in Biomedical Engineering that took place in some of the most respected international research centers and universities of the world.

The attendance of WBME is free of charge and will provide students the possibility to interact with national and international speakers. As in the last year's edition, the 11th WBME will also have a Poster Session for young researchers who wish to present and discuss their recent work:

Granular morphogenesis: from astrophysics to biophysics

Por Troy Shinbrot (Rutgers University).

Abstract: Granular flows are encountered in applications ranging from engineering to astrophysics to biology. In many of these applications, grains spontaneously and unexpectedly form well defined morphologies. In this talk, I will describe a few examples, including the separation of sand and boulders on near earth asteroids, and the emergence of structured patterns in biological cells.
