MetadataShow full item record
In this work it is presented an algorithm that simulates the interstitial patterns and their radiographic images, based on integrated thoracic and pulmonary structures. The thoracic box is modeled using control points and the dimensions of airways and arteries branches are calculated based on the flow distribution from parents to sibling branches. The inflammatory process is represented in the interstitial patterns by an increase in the thickness of the cylinder walls which simulate the bronchioles, as well as considering specific density and composition. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
