PURPOSE Hemodynamic forces are thought to play a critical role in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) growth. In silico and in vitro simulations can be used to study these forces, but require accurate aortic geometries and boundary conditions. Many AAA simulations use patient-specific geometries, but utilize inlet boundary conditions taken from a single, unrelated, healthy young adult. METHODS In this study, we imaged 43 AAA patients using a 1.5 T MR scanner. A 24-frame cardiac-gated one… CONTINUE READING
