Using basic thermodynamic principles we derive a Cahn–Hilliard–Darcy model for tumour growth including nutrient diffusion, chemotaxis, active transport, adhesion, apoptosis and proliferation. The model generalises earlier models and in particular includes active transport mechanisms which ensure thermodynamic consistency. We perform a formally matched(More)
We derive a Cahn–Hilliard–Darcy model to describe multiphase tumour growth taking interactions with multiple chemical species into account as well as the simultaneous occurrence of proliferating, quiescent and necrotic regions. Via a coupling of the Cahn–Hilliard–Darcy equations to a system of reaction-diffusion equations a multitude of phenomena such as(More)
OBJECTIVES We demonstrate a multislice computed tomography (MSCT)-based method to calculate the prediction of the so-called 'line of perpendicularity' (LOP) and the 'implanter's views' (IVs) for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) procedures. The LOP represents all possible angiographic angulations that result in an orthogonal view to the aortic(More)
