Continued work was done developing fluid dynamic models of aneurysm-prone mouse aortae. Current aneurysm outcomes were compared to model data, specifically to aortic tortuosity, suggesting (with a small sample size) that tortuosity might be an important factor to consider when assessing the severity of aneurysm progressions. Moreover, image processing techniques were developed for the lab in order to better quantify changes in elastic laminae structure.
