18SC004 - Patient-specific Blood Flow Simulations Using CRIMSON


C. Alberto Figueroa, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA

Christopher J. Arthurs, King's College London, UK


CRIMSON, the CardiovasculaR Modelling and SimluatiON Environment, is a complete software pipeline for segementing blood vessels from medical imaging data, generating meshes, designing and specifying boundary conditions and material properties, and performing finite element simulation of blood flow on thousands of CPU cores, using teh SUPG-stabilised incompressible Navier-Stokes equations.  The software is used by researchers around the globe, and is freely available for userse to download from our website, www.crimson.software.


Upon completing the short course, attendees will be fully trained in performing image-derived patient-specific simluations of arterial blood flow using CRIMSON.  Because of CRIMSON's focus on presenting cutting-edge modelling and simulation features via a modern and intuitive user interface, complete novices can learn to perform their first segmentation and simulation in less than half a day.  The second half of the short course will teach advanced features of CRIMSON, such as custom boundary condition design tools, patient-specific cardiac performance mdoelling, and transitional physiology and cardiovascular control scripting.  Attendees will leave the short course with an in-depth understanding of how CRIMSON can accelerate their own research.  Attendees will be required to bring their own laptops to work on.
