Backward sensitivity analysis and reduced-order covariance estimation in noninvasive parameter identification for cerebral arteries

Abstract : Using a previously developed inversion platform for functional cerebral medical imaging with ensemble Kalman filters, this work analyzes the sensitivity of the results with respect to different parameters entering the physical model and inversion procedure, such as the inlet flow rate from the heart, the choice of the boundary conditions, and the nonsymmetry in the network terminations. It also proposes an alternative low complexity construction for the covariance matrix of the hemodynamic parameters of a network of arteries including the circle of Willis. The platform takes as input patient-specific blood flow rates extracted from magnetic resonance angiography and magnetic resonance imaging (dicom files) and is applied to several available patients data. The paper presents full analysis of the results for one of these patients, including a sensitivity study with respect to the proximal and distal boundary conditions. The results notably show that the uncertainties on the inlet flow rate led to uncertainties of the same order of magnitude in the estimated parameters (blood pressure and elastic parameters) and that three-lumped parameters boundary conditions are necessary for a correct retrieval of the target signals.
