Recent Advances in 3D Blood flow Simulation:  From Parameter Estimation Methods to Clinical Applications

Abstract

In this talk we will give 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 will also discuss recent progress made on the validation of CFD predictions of pressure gradients in coarctation patients at rest and stress using clinical pressure data.
