What if physicians and surgeons could virtually analyze their patients’ health and plan therapies and surgeries using the same advanced simulation technology that the automotive, aerospace, energy and hi-tech industries rely on to test their product before they are built? What if medical devices could be designed and safely tested in the virtual world before ever being tested in the real world?

O projeto “Estimação não invasiva de reserva de fluxo fracionado (FFR) a partir de imagens de tomografia computadorizada e simulação numérica de fenômenos hemodinâmicos”, coordenado pelo professor Pablo Javier Blanco, do Laboratório Nacional de Computação Científica (LNCC), foi selecionado na Chamada Universal 2014 do Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq/MCTI), Faixa B – até R$ 60.000,00. O projeto envolve o LNCC em parceria com o Instituto do Coração e o Hospital Sírio-Libanês, instituições médicas líderes no Brasil. A Chamada tem por objetivo selecionar propostas para apoio financeiro a projetos que visem contribuir significativamente para o desenvolvimento científico e tecnológico e inovação do País. E, atendendo a esse objetivo, o projeto contemplado pretende desenvolver métodos numéricos para análises fluidodinâmicas visando estimar índices hidrodinâmicos associados à oclusão de artérias coronárias e seu impacto no risco de isquemia miocárdica. Espera-se que os resultados alcançados com esse projeto forneçam ferramentas não invasivas de confiabilidade equivalente às técnicas invasivas para auxiliar na avaliação de isquemia de miocárdio em pacientes com doença coronária.

 . November 15-18, 2010: Session on Computational Methods in Hemodynamics as part of the 2010 BICENTENNIAL MECOM Conference.
Over the last few years, predictive computational tools have been introduced in medical practice as a result of joint research on areas of engineering, biology and medicine. The actual degree of development achieved by the computational modeling techniques together with the increasing computational power offered by the actual generation of computers has allowed the development and analysis of highly sophisticated computational models. Such models integrate the complexity of several physiological human systems by means of coupled multiphysics model involving different spatial and temporal scales, and are fed with data at the level of proteins, cells, tissues, organs and patient-specific images. In this sense, these models are capable of giving a better understanding of several physiological and pathophysiological aspects of blood circulation as well as of the onset and development of some cardiovascular diseases. The aim of this session is to bring together researchers that are interested in the computational modeling and simulation of the cardiovascular human system and its associated challenging problems involving multiphysics and multiple scales, for example: modeling and computational simulation of the cardiovascular system in normal or altered state due to pathologies or human interventions (surgeries); multiscale soft tissue modeling; growth and cardiovascular adaptation processes; tissue characterization through inverse problems; fluid-solid interaction; biochemical transport.
