Optimizing Blood Flow In Stented Arteries: A Fluid Mechanics Approach Incorporating Optical Coherence Tomography
Grant number: LP120100233 | Funding period: 2012 - 2017
Constriction in coronary arterial blood flow is a leading cause of death in Australia. Insertion of stents can rectify this problem but potentially lead to further complications. This project will use medical imaging data to construct computer models to study blood flow and particle motions in coronary arteries and improve stent designs.
