Application Thousands of people die each year from ruptured brain and aortic aneurysms. These 'bulges,' which occur in weakened areas of blood vessel walls, can rupture without notice, causing serious complications and even death. Finding ways to quickly and accurately diagnose and prevent these conditions before they rupture will ultimately help physicians lower the toll of this deadly condition.

Promising results are emerging from computer modeling initiatives that use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to help simulate and visualize the flow of blood through the arteries to pinpoint weakened areas.
