Carotid artery hemodynamics: observing patient-specific changes with amlodipine and lisinopril by using MR imaging computation fluid dynamics.

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess whether using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging combined with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) could reveal changes in common carotid artery (CCA) flow and wall shear stress (WSS) that might contribute to differences in CCA remodeling between amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker, and lisinopril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor… (More)
