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 function of the distance from the inlet for the bifurcation region for pulsatile flow for (a) full autoregulation and (b) limited autoregulation. The dotted range in Figure 7(a) is shown here in more detail. The data representing the variance inside the LCX and the corresponding data representing the LAD are partly covering each other. The position of the bifurcation, that is, the last point of the single LMCA centerline, is highlighted in grey.
