Dr. Leonardo Angelone: Computational modeling for assessment of electromagnetic dosimetry with medical devices

Chicago - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Abstract

Our group supports the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulatory and guidance role by advancing knowledge on the complex interactions between electromagnetic (EM) fields and the human body. The research combines anatomically precise computational models and experimental measurements applied to several areas of clinical significance, including the: 1) analysis of radiofrequency (RF)-induced heating in patients with passive implanted medical devices (e.g., stents, orthopedic devices) who undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); 2) analysis of the safety and effectiveness of electrically-active implanted devices (e.g., deep brain stimulators and pacemakers) during MRI; 3) RF safety of human subjects during interventional MRI; and 4) patient safety with respect to exposure to electromagnetic fields during neurostimulation. Moreover, we investigate the use of novel anatomical models that are freely shared to the entire scientific community. These projects are conducted with active collaborations between several researchers, within the FDA and worldwide, at leading academic research institutes and industry organizations.

Speaker info

Leonardo Angelone is a Research Biomedical Engineer at the Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories, Center of Devices and Radiological Health, U.S. FDA. Dr. Angelone leads a Research program that focuses on assessment of energy deposition and heating induced in the human body by medical devices using electromagnetic energy. The investigation is based on a combination of anatomically precise computational models and experimental measurements applied to several areas of clinical significance. The results of the projects have been presented in over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings, and publicly available software. Dr. Angelone has been leading several projects with both internal and external support and is currently collaborating with several groups both within the FDA and worldwide at leading academic research institutes and industry organizations. He has also served as subject matter expert for the FDA CDRH in over 300 pre- and post-market scientific reviews in the area of Medical Imaging and MR Compatibility. Dr. Angelone completed a Laurea in Electronic Engineering (University La Sapienza , Rome, Italy), a PhD in Biomedical Engineering (Tufts University, Medford, MA), and a Research Fellowship at the A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Department of Radiology of the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Prior to joining the FDA, Dr. Angelone has been a consultant with the Research and Development Department in the Surgical Products Division of Hologic Inc.
