Modeling and simulation of medical devices are typically established to identify parameter dependencies within the system of interest. Most devices are multiphysics problems considering solid and fluid mechanics, and electromagnetic mechanisms bridging time and length scales. Typically, the geometries of interest are described by complex morphologies of biological components. These factors all contribute to significant complexity of the developed numerical models. Access to imaging modalities capable of providing the geometrical information of relevance is central in the establishment and verification of numerical analysis. Here, data from image-based models obtained with MRI and μCT to risk access patients prone to realizing stroke, and to evaluate drug eluding scaffolds is presented.
