Location of studies (in Hungarian): PTE ÁOK Pécs, Szigeti u. 12.
Abbreviation of location of studies: ÁOK

Description of the research topic:

Advances in imaging technologies (CT, MRI, DSA) enable creating and analyzing three dimension images. The encouraging method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) creates a possibility to simulate flow dynamics in the vessels. CFD can provide information about the flow dynamics of aneurysms, the nature of endoleak and about the causes of restenosis following carotid and peripheral vascular procedures. Information about the flow dynamics can be an important tool for making indications of open and endovascular procedures and may assist in the decision making for further therapeutic tasks.
