3D aneurysm model is generated from three dimensional medical image data (DICOM data) with its parent arteries using the latest 3D printer. It will be able to understand the aneurysmal morphology or relative position to parent arteries with the actual size. The 3D-printed aneurysm model is valid for the effective micro-catheter shaping in case of endovascular treatment such as coil embolization.
Virtual stent is our original simulation of stent deployment. It is able to deploy various size and length stents at an aneurysm. Although the estimation of the ideal stent is difficult even if the physician is a veteran, this technic will provide you the suitable stent in each aneurysms before the treatment. It also prevent a risk of “stent shortning”, which could not cover the whole area of aneurysmal neck.
It is impossible to obtain the precise blood flow or stress on vessel wall even if the latest diagnostic imaging system is used. These phenomena could be visualized using the simulation technics of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This service will help you to estimate and visualize the blood flow in aneurysm or stress on aneurysmal wall, which is said to be important factors of aneurysmal rupture or growth.
