Title:
Nanoparticle transport in a realistic model of the tracheobronchial region 
Abstract:
The transport and deposition of nanoparticles in the human lung has important health consequences for both hazardous and non-hazardous reasons. Example scenarios are inhalation of toxic pollutants from the surrounding environment and novel targeted drug delivery to the lung epithelial surface. In this paper we develop a method to simulate the time dependent transport of nanoparticles in CT based models of the human tracheobronchial region. We consider the transport in a seven generation model ba...    »
