 1. Dunham ME, *Kong KAMcWhorter AJAdkins LK. Optical Biopsy: Automated Classification of Airway Endoscopic Findings Using a Convolutional Neural Network. Laryngoscope. 2020 Apr 28. doi: 10.1002/lary.28708. [Epub ahead of print] 

The study is a computer based studies using endoscopic airway images and a computer platform that is able to identify normal vs. abnormal (cancerous) tissue and give a calculated diagnosis of what the abnormal tissue is. This can be utilized in future studies in real-time settings ie. the operating room or clinic to assist physicians in determining disease stage and medical course in a timely and effective manner.

 

2. Poynot WJGonthier KADunham ME, *Crosby TW. Classification of tracheal stenosis in children based on computational aerodynamics. J Biomech. 2020 May 7;104:109752. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiomech.2020.109752. Epub 2020 Mar 19. 

This study is aimed to classify tracheal stenosis in childrens' airways based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and medical imaging to establish relationships between trachea anatomy and inspiration performance. 

 

3. Vaitaitis, V., Son, L. and Walvekar, R. Determining the necessity for postoperative antibiotics after salivary stent placement: a randomized study. (submitted June 2020)


This study evaluates the necessity for post-operative antibiotics for patients who underwent salivary gland surgery and had salivary stent placement. It was presented at the Resident and Alumni Research Day for Otolaryngology in June 2020. It is also being submitted as a manuscript and for presentation to a national conference for the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery annual meeting in Sept 2020.
