Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description:Flow Phantom


The team designed and built a prototype of an ultrasound scan-able device, known as a dynamic flow phantom. The phantom will be used to aid in the training of future ultrasound technologists. It accurately simulates a variety of arterial blockages along with a range of flow characteristics. The system involves several different settings which closely imitate human blood flow and tissue characteristics. Team IMTD’s prototype will be used to substantiate Dr. George Chandran’s intellectual patent. Ms. Flynn recently attended the ASME Student Conference in Dayton, Ohio and took second place for IMTD’s poster.
