Recent work employing the computational fluid-particle modeling of the hepatic arteries has identified a correlation between particle release position and downstream branch distribution for direct tumor-targeting in radioembolization procedures. An experimental model has been constructed to evaluate the underlying simulation theory and determine its(More)
Direct targeting of solid tumors with chemotherapeutic drugs and/or radioactive microspheres can be a treatment option which minimizes side-effects and reduces cost. Briefly, computational analysis generates particle release maps (PRMs) which visually link upstream particle injection regions in the main artery with associated exit branches, some connected(More)
