Intracranial aneurysms affect a large number of individuals every year. Changes to hemodynamics are thought to be a crucial factor in the initial formation and enlargement of intracranial aneurysms. Previously, surgical clipping – an open an invasive procedure, was the standard of care. More recently, minimally invasive, catheter based therapies, specifically stenting and coiling, has been employed for treatment as it is less invasive and poses fewer overall risks. However, these treatments can further alter hemodynamic patterns of patients, affecting efficacy and prognosis.
Doppler optical coherence tomography (DOCT) has shown to be useful for the evaluation of changes to hemodynamic patterns in various vascular pathologies, and intravascular DOCT may provide useful insight in the evaluation and changes to hemodynamic patterns before and during the treatment of aneurysms.
In this study, we present preliminary results of DOCT imaging used in three patient-specific aneurysm phantoms located within the Circle of Willis both pre and post-treatment. These results are compared with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations and high-speed camera imaging for further interpretation and validation of results.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
