4D patient-specific computational models of left atrial blood flow and thrombosis - reaching the shore of clinical deployment?

January 12, 2024
Juan Carlos del Álamo, PhD


Upon completion of this program, attendees should be able to:

  • Review 4D (3D in space, time-resolved), multi-physics models of left atrial hemodynamics and thrombosis, including myocardial electromechanics, intracavitary fluid mechanics, and the coagulation cascade.
  • Present advances in computational science that reduce the cost of patient-specific models. Raise awareness that these models now take hours to run on one GPU, not weeks on a supercomputer center.
  • Present practical examples of atrial thrombosis prediction by computational models guided by patient-specific 4D CT and MRI acquisitions.
