    • Evaluation of Artery Visualizations for Heart Disease Diagnosis 

      Borkin, Michelle Anne; Gajos, Krzysztof Z.; Peters, Amanda Elizabeth; Mitsouras, Dimitrios; Melchionna, Simone; Rybicki, Frank John; Feldman, Charles Lawrence; Pfister, Hanspeter (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011)
      Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, and finding indicators of the disease at an early stage is critical for treatment and prevention. In this paper we evaluate visualization techniques that enable ...
    • Hydrokinetic Approach to Large-Scale Cardiovascular Blood Flow 

      Melchionna, Simone; Bernaschi, Massimo; Succi, Sauro; Kaxiras, Efthimios; Rybicki, Frank John; Mitsouras, Dimitris; Coskun, Ahmet U.; Feldman, Charles Lawrence (Elsevier, 2010)
      We present a computational method for commodity hardware-based clinical cardiovascular diagnosis based on accurate simulation of cardiovascular blood flow. Our approach leverages the flexibility of the Lattice Boltzmann ...
    • Thin-Capped Atheromata With Reduced Collagen Content in Pigs Develop in Coronary Arterial Regions Exposed to Persistently Low Endothelial Shear Stress 

      Koskinas, K. C.; Sukhova, Galina K.; Baker, A. B.; Papafaklis, M. I.; Chatzizisis, Y. S.; Coskun, A.
