The AneuRisk project is a a scientific endeavour that aimed at investigating the role of vessel morphology, blood fluid dynamics and biomechanical properties of the vascular wall, on the pathogenesis of cerebral aneurysms. The project has gathered together researchers of different scientific fields, ranging from neurosurgery and neuroradiology to statistics, numerical analysis and bio-engineering.

The project involved the MOX Laboratory for Modeling and Scientific Computing (Dipartimento di Matematica, Politecnico di Milano), Laboratory of Biological Structure Mechanics (Dipartimento di Ingegneria Strutturale, Politecnico di Milano), Istituto Mario Negri (Ranica), Ospedale Niguarda Ca’ Granda (Milano) and Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico (Milano), and has been supported by the Fondazione Politecnico di Milano and Siemens Medical Solutions Italia.

The benchmark dataset AneuRisk65 can be downloaded HERE. An increasing data warehouse is managed by the AneuRisk Web Repository.
