Quantitative imaging methods for the development and validation of brain biomechanics models.

Abstract

Rapid deformation of brain tissue in response to head impact or acceleration can lead to numerous pathological changes, both immediate and delayed. Modeling and simulation hold promise for illuminating the mechanisms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and for developing preventive devices and strategies. However, mathematical models have predictive value only… (More)
