Hemodynamics of Cerebral Aneurysms: Helping Diagnosis and Treatment

Monday, November 27,  4:30-5:45
Exploratory Hall, Room 3301

ABSTRACT: We use image-based computational fluid dynamics to model the blood flow in human cerebral arteries and aneurysms with three specific goals: 1) identify hemodynamic conditions that predispose aneurysms for instability and rupture and thus help with more precise selection of patients at high risk, 2) advance the understanding of the disease mechanisms and enable drug based therapies targeting specific pathways of wall degeneration and weakening, and 3) evaluation of devices and procedures to improve treatment planning and long term outcomes. In this talk I will summarize some our recent progress and results along these three lines of research, and discuss future directions.
