Accurate determination of patient-specific boundary conditions in computational vascular hemodynamics using 3D cine phase-contrast MRI.

In the patient-specific vascular CFD, determination of the inlet and outlet boundary conditions (BCs) is an important issue for a valid diagnosis. The 3D cine phase-contrast MRI (4D Flow) velocimetry is promising for this issue; yet, its measured velocities contain relatively large error and are not admissible as the BCs without any correction.
