Studies of the origin of pulmonary blood flow heterogeneity have highlighted the significant role of vessel branching structure on flow distribution. To enable more detailed investigation of structure-function relationships in the pulmonary circulation, an anatomically based finite element model of the arterial and venous networks has been developed to more accurately reflect the geometry found in vivo. Geometric models of the arterial and venous tree structures are created using a combination… CONTINUE READING
