Intracranial aneurysms, which are local dilatations of the cerebral vessels, are characterized by a complex and very specific progression in combination with highly individualized therapy procedures. To gain the re-quired knowledge with respect to intracranial aneurysm hemodynamics, numerical methods are increasingly used for evaluation and treatment optimization. However, it has been shown that their broad clinical ac-ceptance is limited due to numerous model-based assumptions.
Within this presentation, techniques to overcome this situation are demonstrated. Specifically, the patient-specific aneurysm hemodynamics are critically assessed and evaluated with a focus on verification and vali-dation. After ensuring a reliable usability of the numerical methods, two clinically relevant research areas are addressed. On the one hand, the individual aneurysm rupture risk is assessed based on multimodal evalua-tion techniques, and on the other hand, therapy complications observed in reality are examined using virtual endovascular methods in order to minimize their occurrence in future interventions.
