A numerical finite element model of one human brain is built in COMSOL in order to study a particular form of hydrocephalus, the so called Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH). The geometry of the ventricles and the skull is obtained by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and imported in COMSOL Multiphysics. Form the mechanical point of view, the brain parenchyma is modeled as a porous medium fully ...

Constitutive properties of living cells are able to withstand physiological environment as well as mechanical stimuli occurring within and outside the body. We examined fluid flow and Neo-Hookean deformation related to the rolling effect. A mechanical model to describe the cellular adhesion with detachment is here proposed. We developed a finite element analysis, simulating blood cells attached ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® 4.0 was used to study conductive and convective heat transfer from the human eyeball to the surrounding air. Postmortem temperature decay curves were collected in eyeballs of numerous human corpses. Of course, these curves represent only a portion of the complete temperature decay curve, since the pathologist is able to start collecting temperature data only after some ...

Atherosclerosis in arteries is caused by the formation of stenosis : fatty depositions, on the artery wall. In current medicine, the practice is to observe the maximum percentage occlusion at any arbitrary cross-section and diagnose the patient on that basis, which might not always present the real picture due to non-uniformity of the stenosis thickness. The present work attempts to simulate the ...

3D printing as applied to the area of electronics manufacture covers a broad range of traditional printing technologies . The attraction in 3D printing lies in its potential to disrupt the traditional photolithographic/subtractive manufacturing line with simpler additive processes. Additive electronics manufacturing which utilises 3D printing techniques allow for fewer production steps and ...

引言：激光诱导间质肿瘤热疗法是一种可使生物组织局部地方凝结坏死的肿瘤疾病治疗方法，目前已经用于肝、脑等各部位的肿瘤治疗[1-2]。为了更好地进行肿瘤疾病的治疗，需要实时地对组织的温度和热损伤进行监控，而检测技术很难实现对肿瘤治疗过程的实时监测，故数值计算成为研究光热疗法的有力工具[2-6]。本模型将生物组织光传输的物理场与热传输的物理场相耦合，考虑组织光热参数随温度变化的情况，研究了肿瘤周围含有大动脉的情况时组织的温度分布随时间的变化情况，研究结果对指导临床医学肿瘤治疗有重要意义。 COMSOL Multiphysics® 的软件使用： 几何模型：如图1所示，圆柱代表光源，圆形区域代表肝脏肿瘤，弯曲圆柱代表大血管，大正方体代表肝脏。 PDE 接口和生物传热接口，选择生物组织的热损伤。 结果： 如图2，图3所示，在加热过程中，开始时血管对温度分布几乎无影响，但是随着加热时间变长 ...

In this paper, a three-dimensional model of the coronary artery bifurcation is developed and physiological flow in the both healthy and stented coronary artery bifurcation is modeled using COMSOL Multiphysics. Wall shear stress induced by endovascular stents in the coronary artery bifurcation is analyzed considering both non- Newtonian and Newtonian flow models. Our simulations shows that the ...

Intracerebral hemorrhage is a condition where a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and causes internal bleeding leading to hemorrhagic stroke. 800 in every 100,000 people suffer from stroke each year and it's one of the major causes of mortality worldwide. Diagnosis involves Neurological examination with MRI/CT scans which is costly and time consuming. Microwave Tomography (MWT) is proposed as a ...

The delivery of chemotherapy for cancer into the central nervous system, in particular the brain, remains a challenge. This results in brain metastases commonly being a cause of death from cancer. Here, we look at the environment of the blood-brain barrier. Then, we explore two proteins (breast cancer resistance protein and p-glycoprotein) that may inhibit the transport of medications (erlotinib ...
