Abstract

Quantitative measurements of particle paths and velocities have been obtained in a contraction/sudden expansion model which is designed to model the hemodynamics of large arteries. The particle size and density were selected to model monocytes. Images were obtained from two perpendicular video cameras, and were processed with an automated particle tracking program which could obtain the three-dimensional coordinates and paths of the particles. The results indicate drift of particles toward and away from the artery wall which does not appear to be directly related to buoyancy.
