—We use a collection of Python programs for numerical simulation of liver perfusion. We have an application for semi-automatic generation of a finite element mesh of the human liver from computed tomography scans and for reconstruction of the liver vascular structure. When the real vascular trees can not be obtained from the CT data we generate artificial(More)
This paper presents a theoretical investigation of the multiphysical phenomena that govern cortical bone behaviour. Taking into account the piezoelectricity of the collagen-apatite matrix and the electrokinetics governing the interstitial fluid movement, we adopt a multiscale approach to derive a coupled poroelastic model of cortical tissue. Following how(More)
Quantitative description of hepatic microvascular bed could contribute to understanding perfusion CT imaging. Micro-CT is a useful method for the visualization and quantification of capillary-passable vascular corrosion casts. Our aim was to develop and validate open-source software for the statistical description of the vascular networks in micro-CT scans.(More)
