Perception-oriented blood flow visualization for patient-specific treatment of multiple aneurysms

Cerebral aneurysms show a high prevalence in the western population, while their annual risk of rupture is below 1%. The bleeding caused by a rupture of such an aneurysms can have fatal consequences, but the treatment procedure itself is risky and can lead to severe complications.

Therefore, assessing the risk of rupture is vital to devise an optimal, patient-specific treatment plan – especially for patients with multiple aneurysms that may require multiple treatment sessions. The goal of this project is to develop and evaluate visualization techniques that support physicians with treatment decisions in such cases.
