Brief description Rupture of brain aneurysms can lead to severe disability and death. This project proposes novel ways of assessing risk of rupture using sophisticated mathematical models of blood flow in aneurysms and biochemical substances released in the blood. This will enhance basic understanding of aneurysm formation and improve treatment and management.
