Diagnostic System of Coronary Artery Disease: Parameter Identification Tasks and Treatment of Tracer Kinetic Problems by using Integral Equations

Bernhard Quatember, Martin Mayr

Abstract


We will deal with the development of a computer system within the framework of the newly-established “AUSTRIAN GRID” for patient-specific simulation studies of the flow of blood in the entire coronary circulation. The properties of the intramyocardial vessels must be deduced from PET perfusion images by means of large-scale parameter identification methods. The tracer kinetic parameters can be efficiently be identified by solving integral equations. We will point out the details of the parameter identification tasks and especially the treatment of tracer kinetic problems by using integral equations.
