Application: Visualizations Take Researchers Inside the Brain
Posted Tue October 03, 2006 @05:06PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application At Rice University in Houston, Texas, members of the Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T*AFSM) are working with team members from other institutions to unlock mysteries of the circulatory system found within the human brain.

The group consists of researchers from Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, and Bethel University in Minnesota. Their computational resources include the computer modeling methods and programs developed by the T*AFSM and a Cray XD1 supercomputer at Rice. The interdisciplinary team is using computational fluid mechanics and fluid-structure interaction to model cerebral arteries, with the goal of a better understanding—and ultimately, better diagnoses and prognoses—of cerebral aneurysms.

Post Processing by Douglas Clark

A young woman checked into University Hospital Freiburg in southwestern Germany, complaining of numbness in her arms and signs of a mild stroke. Relying on conventional diagnostic techniques, local physicians soon found that the young woman was suffering from a fairly uncommon condition consisting of a blood clot in the aortic arch, a part of the body’s main artery, the aorta.

The condition was effectively treated with a standard treatment: a simple prescription of a blood-thinning agent, such as aspirin or warfarin. But with the stroke reversed and other symptoms relieved, the young woman no doubt still had questions and concerns about her health. Was this a one-time occurrence, and would there be any further medical consequences? And what had caused this to happen in the first place?
