Large eddy simulation of blood flow in a realistic model of the Circle of Willis

The dataset was produced using fully resolved Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and multiharmonic rheological flow models in a realistic in silico phantom of the CoW.  Researchers and biomedical engineers could utilize this dataset to fine-tune their CFD models and establish standard reference simulation(s) before carrying out further parametric studies. Having the dataset released under an open-access license encourages the community to further …

AI demonstrates potential to detect carotid artery disease on duplex ultrasound

A prospective study has demonstrated the potential feasibility, applicability and accuracy held by artificial intelligence (AI) in the detection of carotid artery disease on greyscale static duplex ultrasound imaging. This is the conclusion reached by Ali Kordzadeh (Faculty of Science and Engineering, Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, UK) and colleagues in the journal Vascular. “This network […]

Researchers propose optimisation of duplex velocity criteria for diagnosing ICA stenosis

Writing in an online Vascular Medicine article, researchers from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) Vascular Testing division report findings from a multicentre study of duplex ultrasound for diagnosis of internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis. The study was developed in response to wide variability in the diagnostic criteria used to classify severity of ICA stenosis across vascular […]
