Title:
Spatial distribution of material properties in the wall of abdominal aortic aneurysms 
Abstract:
The Finite Element Method (FEM) is a promising tool to evaluate rupture risk of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and thus support clinical decision making. However, knowledge on spatial distribution of wall thickness, elastic properties and strength is prerequisite for meaningful FEM simulation results. In this study, mixed-effects models (comparable to [1]) for the distributions of these quantities are first created and then applied to a set of patient-specific AAAs.
