Neurointerventionists are routinely faced with the dilemma whether or not to treat unruptured intracranial aneurysms. Hemodynamic and morphological characteristics have become important considerations for aneurysm rupture-risk assessment [1]. Clinicians require an integrated tool that analyzes these parameters to help make treatment decisions in clinical workflow, however such a tool does not exist. To this end, Toshiba Stroke and Vascular Research Center (TSVRC) at University at Buffalo and Orobix Srl (Italy) have developed a prototype of a computational workflow system. Termed AView, it is an integrated, image-based vascular analysis tool for rapid assessment of aneurysmal hemodynamics, morphometrics, rupture risk assessment, and treatment planning.
