Paper Abstract

In this paper, we show how 3-D arterial visualisations may be combined with a 3-D representation of blood flow. We have developed techniques for the estimation and representation of the entire 3-D flow field for the section of artery under investigation. The flow fields are calculated from numerical solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations by a flow solver using a finite difference approach. In order to achieve this, both the profile of the inlet velocity waveform and the shape of the external grid structure of the flow field, derived from the 3-D solid model, are required. Clinically useful 3-D flow information is presented effectively by using a combination of 2-D cross-sectional displays.
