Automatic Construction of Vascular Arteriovenous Tree Geometric Model

Rafael A. B. de Queiroz, Luiz C. M. de Aquino

Resumo


We propose an algorithm based on the computational method of Constrained Constructive Optimization for construction of a geometric model of vascular arteriovenous tree. It uses physiological conditions for pressure and flow while minimizing the total intravascular volume. We apply the algorithm to construct a geometric model of renal vascular system. The results show that our model has morphometric properties similar to real renal arterial and venous trees.
