Project: Non invasive research of arterial elasticity in arterial hypertension and atherosclerosis.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
abstract
Atherogenesis on preference locations is related to turbulence and wall shear stress. The proces is determined by blood rheology, elastic wall properties and vascular geometry. Simultaneous research on numerical, mathematical and physical models is to provide a non invasive protocol to detect atherosclerosis in an early stage, and to determine vascular elasticity.
