The construction of computational models from images of experimental or clinical vascular models should result in more reliable flow simulations, but it is accompanied by great challenges. Curvature, branching, and the lack of planarity in a model are some of the factors that complicate both the imaging procedure and the image data processing performed in order to extract the geometry and re-construct the models. This study describes the methodology developed to image and construct a… CONTINUE READING
