Amanda Randles presents: "Simulating Hemodynamics in Patient-Specific Vascular Geometries"

Thursday, April 7, 2016 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Duke South, Purple Zone, Room 3031, 3rd Floor

Duke Cardiac Diagnostic Unit Presents Cardiovascular Imaging Grand Rounds 
"Simulating Hemodynamics in Patient-Specific Vascular Geometries" by Amanda Randles, PhD,
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Duke University Medical Center

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, learners should be able to:

·   For patients with vascular disease, outline the pipeline for deriving geometries from imaging data and non-invasively determining values of interest such as endothelial shear stress.

·   Describe the potential role for personalized hemodynamic simulations in treatment planning.

·   Categorize computationally tractable questions and identify target areas where fluid simulations can enhance knowledge of patient’s risks.
