This paper is about the quantitative prediction of the long term outcome of the endovascular coiling treatment of a patient's cerebral aneurysm. It is generally believed that the local hemodynamic properties of the patient's cerebral arteries are strongly influencing the origin and growth of aneurysms. We describe our approach: modelling the flow in a 3D Rotational Angiography (3DRA) reconstruction of the aneurysms including supplying and draining blood vessels, in combination with simulations and experiments of artificial blood vessel phantom constructs and measurements. The goal is to obtain insight in the observed phenomena to support the diagnostic decision process in order to predict the outcome of the intervention with possible simulation of the flow alternation due to the pertinent intervention.
