  1. A guide to uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis for cardiovascular applications

    Vinzenz Gregor Eck, Wouter Paulus Donders, Jacob Sturdy, Jonathan Feinberg, Tammo Delhaas, Leif Rune Hellevik and Wouter Huberts

    Uncertainty quantification (UQ) and sensitivity analysis (SA) are critical for the clinical application of mathematical models. We review the best practices for UQ and SA and present a practical guide that can help move models towards clinical application. We demonstrate the practical guide in two examples using both the Monte Carlo method and the polynomial chaos method.

    The technology for personalized segmentation, skeletonization and graph extraction is proposed. The novelties of this paper are the following algorithms: fully automatic coronary artery segmentation, automatic reconstruction of 1D network using skeleton extraction from segmented image, automatic 1D network extraction from a set of centerlines with common root, 1D network graphs post-processing such as graph correction and local adaptation.

  5. A new simplified methodology for studying the coupled fluid–structure interaction in a weakened basilar artery

    Article first published online: 9 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cnm.2752

    The present paper describes the wall deformation of a weakened basilar artery under the blood pressure, during the cardiac cycle. In particular, we use a new methodology introduced by Luchini and Charru (2010) about quasi-one dimensional flows to reduce the computational cost of fluid–structure interaction. The obtained results show the deformation of the artery and in particular the trend of the wall shear stress induced by the weakening of the arterial wall.
