    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is one of the most recognized risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (CVD). It is therefore important for preventive work against CVD to target factors with impact on atherosclerosis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analyzing arterial blood flow by simulation of bifurcation trees

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Matematik och tillämpad matematik

    Author : Johan Ottosson; [2019]
    Keywords : Arterial blood flow; Blood flow modelling; bifurcation tree; simulation; fixed-point iteration;

    Abstract : The flow of blood in the human body is a very important component in un-derstanding a number of different ailments such as atherosclerosis and a falseaneurysm. In this thesis, we have utilized Poiseuille’s solution to Navier-Stokesequations with a Newtonian, incompressible fluid flowing laminar with zero ac-celeration in a pipe with non-flexible walls in order to study blood flow in anarterial tree.

    Abstract : SCAPIS is a national project in Sweden and stands for Swedish CardioPulmonary bioImage Study. The objective of SCAPIS is to find biomarkers in order to improve the risk prediction and lower the death rate of Cardiovascular disease (CVD). CVD is a big health problem and is one of the main causes of death in many industrial countries. READ MORE

  5. 5. Using convolutional neural networks to classify ultrasound images of the carotid artery wall

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Jakob Vesterlind; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases are very prominent in western countries.
