Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) uses highly sophisticated computer algorithms to simulate the flow of air and particles through complex 3D structures in an accurate, reproducible and scientific manner. In recent years, researchers have begun to explore the use of CFD in the nose and upper airway, firstly by modelling airflow patterns, then through the study of common deformities, such as septal deviation, septal perforations and inferior turbinate hypertrophy. Recently, CFD has been used to model and predict the effects of surgery. SCONA was formed to foster collegiality between researchers in this exciting new field.
Welcome to the First World Congress on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) of the Nose & Airway.
In recent years there has been an explosion in interest in the field of CFD of the Nose and Airway. The time has come for researchers in Engineering and Healthcare to convene and explore the frontiers of this exciting new field.
In our packed one-day program, we will discuss the Engineering/ technical aspects of CFD simulation, along with practical clinical applications of the results. Our Faculty consists of leading innovators from across the globe, whose knowledge and insights will appeal to experienced researchers, novices entering the field, and interested observers alike.
The conference will be held in conjunction with the Eurpean Rhinological Society Meeting, in the spectacular city of London, against the stunning backdrop of the Thames river, London Bridge, Tower Bridge and The Shard.
We look forward to the pleasure of your company in London on April 22nd, 2018.
