FluidDA - Functional Imaging using Advanced Engineering

R&D services – Image Analysis A significant part of FluidDA’s core business consists of developing and applying novel image processing methods. Data from clinical trials can be centralized on local servers and analyzed efficiently. Typically the efficiency of therapies can be assessed in detail using image modalities such as CT, MRI, PET and SPECT. FluidDA has substantial experience in respiratory, sleep, musculoskeletal and cardiovascular medicine.

Biological Fluid Dynamics - Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) The dynamics of fluids flowing through a human body can have a significant effect on the overall health of a person. Unobstructed flow in the respiratory system ensures the delivery of enough oxygen to the blood. Various pulmonary diseases like asthma or COPD may affect this process. The same principles hold for all body fluids like for instance blood. Obstructions or alterations of blood flows can lead to heart attack, aneurysms, etc.

Medical Devices and Other Facilities Medical devices as well as surgical aids can be optimised using CFD and FEA techniques. A better understanding of flow and structural properties results in a better design for the medical devices.

Structural Dynamics - Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Often it can be observed in the human body that the fluid flows influence the structural behaviour of the surrounding tissue and vice versa. Consider an aortic valve being opened by a flow of blood or an upper airway collapsing during sleep apnea thereby obstructing the flow. These phenomena can be described as Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI).
