Coffee Talk - "Computational Modeling of Flow Diverting Devices in Intracanial Aneurysms", by Marcelo Raschi

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017. Time: 15h

Place: O.C. Zienkiewicz Conference Room, C1 Building, UPC Campus Nord, Barcelona.


When evaluating unruptured cerebral aneurysms, it is necessary to assess their risk of rupture and to compare them to the risks involved in their treatment. Routine, fast simulations using the patient-specific geometry of the aneurysm may help in a better planning of the treatment and in a consequent reduction of the associated risks.

In this work we present a technique for the simulation of flow diverter devices ("stents") in intracranial aneurysms by using a porous medium method, which greatly reduces the computational cost of these simulations, allowing for their application to treatment planning and device design.


Marcelo Raschi is a postdoctoral researcher at Prof. Oliver's group at CIMNE, working at the COMP-DES-MAT project. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computational Data Sciences and Informatics at George Mason University. He later worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Scientific Computing at University of Basel.
