This pilot study is a product of the AneuRisk Project, a scientific program that aims at evaluating the role of vascular geometry and hemodynamics in the pathogenesis of cerebral aneurysms. By means of functional data analyses, we explore the AneuRisk dataset to highlight the relations between the geometric features of the internal carotid artery, expressed by its radius profile and centerline curvature, and the aneurysm location. After introducing a new similarity index for functional data, we… CONTINUE READING
