Abstract

This purpose of this study was to develop the pre- and post-processing algorithms in order to rapidly examine the velocity and wall shear patterns inside a patient specific geometry. The geometry and flow conditions of the common carotid artery were obtained non-invasively using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This information was processed as the input boundary conditions and geometry for a commercially available computational software package.
