Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulations of Contrast Agent Bolus Dispersion in a Coronary Bifurcation: Impact on MRI-Based Quantification of Myocardial Perfusion
The variance of the VTF as a function of the distance from the inlet. Results of the stenotic LAD are represented as solid line and results of the normal LCX as dashed line. The line representing variance inside the healthy LCX for constant flow is covered by the corresponding line for pulsatile flow. The position of the stenosis is highlighted in grey. The dotted range marked in (a) is shown in more detail in Figure 8.
