In hydraulic non-occlusive models, mixing effects were studied with slug-injection and constant-infusion techniques. Measurements were accomplished by means of catheters specially constructed with thermistors. Constant-rate infusion of 5 ml/min of saline at room temperature showed homogeneity of mixing. Good correlation (r=0.936) was found between metered… CONTINUE READING
