Matteo Aletti – Progress Report 3

Posted by: | March 24, 2015 | No Comment |

In the last nine months I have been mainly working on three different topics: smooth muscle models, retinal image analysis and intra ocular pressure (IOP). These topics may seem unrelated, however, retinal imaging tools are fundamental in providing reliable geometries for haemodynamics models. Retinal blood flow is characterized by autoregulation phenomena and smooth muscle cells play an important role in it: contracting and relaxing following bio-chemical stimuli. We have summarized the results of this autoregulation models in a publication that is going through the review process. Finally, IOP plays a major role in several eye diseases (glaucoma, for instance) and we have just started to address the problem of modeling of the eye from a broader point of view coupling the haemodynamics with the intra ocular pressure.
