Cardiovascular Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering

John C. Brigham, Wilkins Aquino, Michael S. Sacks

The goal of this minisymposium is to bring together the state of the art in computational methods applied to the analysis of the cardiovascular system, including novel computational and modeling techniques, as well as existing techniques applied to derive new information about the cardiovascular system. As applied to the cardiovascular system, topics may include, but are not limited to

- Cardiovascular fluid and/or solid mechanics

- Medical image processing and model generation

- Multi-scale and multi-physics analysis of cell/tissue/organ/system behavior

- In vivo or in vitro behavior

- Native or engineered cardiovascular systems

- Constitutive models and their numerical implementation

- Inverse problems for characterization/diagnostics and cardiovascular disease treatment control and optimization
