Hyperthermia for treatment of hyperplasia in a hemodialysis access graft
I would like to express my appreciation to my supervisory committee. Committee chair Dr. Douglas Christensen provided the knowledge and expertise to make this all possible. Dr. Yan-Ting Shiu and the Vascular Bioengineering; Laboratory contributed to the cellular research portion of the project. Dr. Robert Roemer gave valuable insight into the heat transfer analysis. I would also like to give thanks to Urvi Vyas for her help with understanding and using the Hybrid Angular Spectrum and to Ran Niu for her help with COMSOL modeling. I am also grateful to my wife, Amy, for her patience and understanding.
