BACKGROUND A longstanding hypothesis that correlates fluid dynamic forces and atherosclerotic disease has led to numerous analytical, numerical, and experimental studies over the years because it is very difficult to measure the hemodynamic variables of blood in vivo. PURPOSE To investigate the technique of visualization and quantitation of hemodynamic variables at carotid artery bifurcation in vivo by combining computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and vascular imaging.
