Last Thursday Carlos Alberto Figueroa from University of Michigan and King’s College of London was giving an overview of a series of methods for 3D blood flow modeling, ranging from Kalman filtering techniques for automatic outflow and material parameter estimation to baroreflex model for automatic control of blood pressure. We also discussed the recent progress made on the validation of CFD predictions of pressure gradients in coarctation patients at rest and stress using clinical pressure data.
- Methods to predict the growth & remodeling of blood vessels in response to changes in their biomechanical environment.
- Methods to predict the short-term response (auto-regulation) of the arterial system in response to changes in pressure and flow.
- Computational tools to evaluate and predict the performance of abdominal and thoracic endografts.
