    • Build a 4D MRI blood-flow velocity atlas 

      Feng, Hongping (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-07-02)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Technische Universiteit Delft
      Cardiovascular disease (CVD) are the global number one cause of death. The current diagnosis of CVD is mainly based on functions and morphology. We have built a statistical vector field model based on 4D flow MRI, by ...
    • Computational study of the hemodynamics in single ventricle physiology: an approach to patient-specific surgical planning 

      Vila Pérez, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-10-24)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Covenantee:   Georgia Institute of Technology
      Patient-specific surgical planning for single ventricle patients represents a crucial stage within their clinical life. Computational-aided diagnoses and evaluations, by means of the use of imaging techniques, designing ...
    • Concurrent measurement of cerebral hemodynamics and electroencephalography during transcranial direct current stimulation 

      Giovannella, Martina; Ibañez, David; Gregori-Pla, Clara; Kacprzak, Michal; Mitjà, Guillem; Ruffini, Giulio; Durduran, Turgut (SPIE, 2018-01-25)
      Article
      Open Access
      Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is currently being used for research and treatment of some neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as for improvement of cognitive functions. In order to better ...
    • Coupling Biot and Navier-Stokes problems for fluid-poroelastic structure interaction 

      Badia, Santiago; Quaini, Annalisa; Quarteroni, Alfio, 1952- (2008-02-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      The interaction between a fluid and a poroelastic structure is a complex problem that couples the Navier-Stokes equations for the fluid with the Biot system for the structure. The finite element approximation of this problem ...
    • Early detection of acute transmural myocardial ischemia by the phasic systolic-diastolic changes of local tissue electrical impedance 

      Jorge, Esther; Amoros Figueras, Gerard; García Sánchez, Tomás; Bragós Bardia, Ramon; Rosell Ferrer, Francisco Javier; Cinca Cuscullola, Juan Maria (2016-02-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Myocardial electrical impedance is influenced by the mechanical activity of the heart. Therefore, the ischemia-induced mechanical dysfunction may cause specific changes in the systolic-diastolic pattern of myocardial ...
    • Estudio paramétrico de tensiones hemodinámicas en modelos de aneurismas de aorta abdominal 

      Soudah Prieto, Eduardo; Vilalta, G.; Bordone, M.; Nieto, F.; Vilalta, J.A.; Vaquero, C. (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. CIMNE, 2015)
      Article
      Open Access
      El objetivo del presente estudio es determinar qué influencia tienen los parámetros geométricos con las tensiones hemodinámicas en aneurismas abdominales aórticos. Para ello los autores han creado varios modelos geométricos ...
    • Impact of the mechanical interface on BCG signals obtained from electronic weighing scales 

      Casanella Alonso, Ramón; Gómez Clapers, Joan; Hernández Urrea, Marc; Pallàs Areny, Ramon (2016)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This work analyzes the reproducibility of the BCG obtained from different weighing scales. First, the natural frequency of three commercial bathroom scales has been characterized by an impulse excitation test. Second, the ...
    • Mechanical Response of the Endothelial Glycocalyx to Pulsatile Flow 

      Perdigó Oliveras, Arnau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Imperial College London, 2011)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      The endothelial glycocalyx is a thin layer lining the internal wall of all blood vessels. It is in the arteries wall where cholesterol and other fatty materials can accumulate eventually obstructing the blood flow and ...
    • Modelado y simulación matemática del sistema cardiovascular 

      Macedo Domínguez, Leonor (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-07-03)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      El propósito de este proyecto es desarrollar una herramienta numérica basada en la resolución de las ecuaciones unidimensionales del flujo sanguíneo, capaz de predecir las características hemodinámicas generales del sistema ...
