Project: Improved non-invasive diagnostics of arterial disease through integrated simulation of medical ultrasound, arterial blood flow and aretrial wall mechanics
- project duration
- 01-JAN-09 – 31-OCT-11
- Aim is to develop an advanced simulation tool for cardiovascular ultrasound applications, based on computer simulations of blood flow and arterial mechanics (expertise Ugent). As Ugent lacks fundamental knowledge on medical ultrasound, we will collaborate with NTNU, Trondheim. This bilateral project will specifically allow us to couple wall mechanics (Abaqus) and ultrasound (Field) and develop advanced ultrasound applications (a.o. 3D).
