We report new results on blood flow modeling over large volumes of cortical gray matter of primate brain. We propose a network method for computing the blood flow, which handles realistic boundary conditions, complex vessel shapes, and complex nonlinear blood rheology. From a detailed comparison of the available models for the blood flow rheology and the(More)
Vascular domains have been described as being coupled to neuronal functional units enabling dynamic blood supply to the cerebral cyto-architecture. Recent experiments have shown that penetrating arterioles of the grey matter are the building blocks for such units. Nevertheless, vascular territories are still poorly known, as the collection and analysis of(More)
3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in patient-specific geometries provides complementary insights to clinical imaging, to better understand how heart disease, and the side effects of treating heart disease, affect and are affected by hemodynamics. This information can be useful in treatment planning for designing artificial devices that are subject to(More)
Multiphase flow in porous media provides a wide range of applications: from the environmental understanding (aquifer, site-pollution) to industrial process improvements (oil production, waste management). Modeling of such flows involves specific volume-averaged equations and therefore specific computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools. In this work, we(More)
In this work, a complete work flow from pore-scale imaging to absolute permeability determination is described and discussed. Two specific points are tackled, concerning (1) the mesh refinement for a fixed image resolution and (2) the impact of the determination method used. A key point for this kind of approach is to work on enough large samples to check(More)
Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital heart disease characterized over time, after the initial repair, by the absence of a functioning pulmonary valve, which causes regurgitation, and by progressive enlargement of the right ventricle outflow tract (RVOT). Due to this pathological anatomy, available transcatheter valves are usually too small to be deployed(More)
A computational approach is proposed for efficient design study of a reducer stent to be percutaneously implanted in enlarged right ventricular outflow tracts (RVOT). The need for such a device is driven by the absence of bovine or artificial valves which could be implanted in these RVOT to replace the absent or incompetent native valve, as is often the(More)
Using a systematic investigation of brain blood volume, in high-resolution synchrotron 3D images of microvascular structures within cortical regions of a primate brain, we challenge several basic questions regarding possible vascular bias in high-resolution functional neuroimaging. We present a bilateral comparison of cortical regions, where we analyze(More)
The modeling of blood flows confined in micro-channels or micro-capillary beds depends on the interactions between the cell-phase, plasma and the complex geometry of the network. In the case of capillaries or channels having a high aspect ratio (their longitudinal size is much larger than their transverse one), this modeling is much simplified from the use(More)
Cerebral blood flow (CBF) is the most common parameter for the quantification of brain's function. Literature data indicate a widespread dispersion of values that might be related to some differences in the measurement conditions that are not properly taken into account in CBF evaluation. Using recent high-resolution imaging of the complete cortical(More)
