Abstract

Cerebral aneurysms (also known as intracranial aneurysms or brain aneurysms) are one of the prevalent cerebrovascular disorders in adults worldwide and caused by a weakness in the brain artery. The most impressive treatment for a brain aneurysm is interventional radiology treatment, which is extremely dependent on the skill level of the radiologist. Hence, accurate detection and effective therapy for cerebral aneurysms still remain important clinical challenges. In fact, a reliable modeling and visualizing environment for measuring and displaying blood flow patterns in vivo can provide insight into the hemodynamic characteristics of cerebral aneurysms. In this work, we have introduced a pipeline for cerebral blood flow simulation and real-time visualization incorporating all aspects from medical image acquisition to real-time visualization and steering. Methods We have developed and employed an improved version of HemeLB as the main computational core of the pipeline. HemeLB is a massive parallel
lattice-Boltzmann fluid solver optimized for sparse and complex geometries. The visualization component of this pipeline is based on the ray marching method implemented on CUDA capable GPU cores.
