CFD Helps Diagnose High Risk Brain Aneurysms

Application University of Houston engineers are working with neurology specialists on new technology to help identify which brain aneurysms are at highest risk of rupture and could cause a stroke.

In A Stroke of Genius The Engineer Online looks at how CFD is used to study blood flow in realistic geometric models of aneurysms. Using the method, researchers were able to identify blood flow characteristics that may contribute to aneurysm formation.

"One of the key points is that aneurysms don't seem to form randomly," Metcalfe said. "They do seem to form at locations that are associated with the fluctuations in the flow of blood, leading to the question of what it is about the flow of blood that tends to correlate with the formation of aneurysms."
