For modeling of a vascular tree for hemodynamic analysis, the well-known Weibel, Horsfield, and Strahler systems have three shortcomings: vessels of the same order are all treated as in parallel, despite the fact that some are connected in series; histograms of the diameters of vessels in the successive orders have wide overlaps; and the "small-twigs-on-large-trunks" phenomenon is not given a quantitative expression. To improve the accuracy of the hemodynamic circuit model, we made a… CONTINUE READING
