This paper proposes a new Patient-Specific Aneurysm CFD Model (PSAM) which is based on the energy strain function combined with dilated vessel wall stress-strain relationship to predict aneurysm rupture. The PSAM relies on the available mechanical properties and parameters obtained from a personalized model. A personalized model is developed based on instantaneous arterial deformations obtained from Doppler Ultrasound (US) images at 6–9 MHz. It is shown that PSAM has the ability to correlate the deformation wall energy based on continuous patient-specifics in predicting rupture.
