BACKGROUND Understanding hemodynamic environment in vessels is important for realizing the mechanisms leading to vascular pathologies. OBJECTIVES Three-dimensional velocity vector field in carotid bifurcation is visualized using TR 3D phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (TR 3D PC MRI) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This study aimed to(More)
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a valuable tool for studying vascular diseases, but requires long computational time. To alleviate this issue, we propose a statistical framework to predict the aneurysmal wall shear stress patterns directly from the aneurysm shape. A database of 38 complex intracranial aneurysm shapes is used to generate aneurysm(More)
Virtual endovascular treatment models (VETMs) have been developed with the view to aid interventional neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons to pre-operatively analyze the comparative efficacy and safety of endovascular treatments for intracranial aneurysms. Based on the current state of VETMs in aneurysm rupture risk stratification and in patient-specific(More)
Hemodynamics is a risk factor in intracranial aneurysms (IA). Hypertension and pharmacologically induced hypotension are common in IA patients. This study investigates how hypertension and hypotension may influence aneurysmal hemodynamics. Images of 23 IAs at typical locations were used to build patient-specific Computational Fluid Dynamics models. The(More)
Adverse wall shear stress (WSS) patterns are known to play a key role in the localisation, formation, and progression of intracranial aneurysms (IAs). Complex region-specific and time-varying aneurysmal WSS patterns depend both on vascular morphology as well as on variable systemic flow conditions. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been proposed for(More)
BACKGROUND Hemodynamics is thought to play an important role in the mechanisms responsible for initiation, growth, and rupture of intracranial aneurysms. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis is used to assess intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to investigate the effects of variations in heart rate and internal carotid artery(More)
