Fractal Analysis - Applications in Health Sciences and Social Sciences
The cardiovascular system is composed of a complex network of vessels, where highly uniform hierarchical branching structures are regulated by the anatomy and local low requirements. Arteries bifurcate many times before they become capillaries where the scaling factor of vessel length, diameter and angle between two children branches is established at each level of recurrence. This behaviour can be easily described using a fractal scaling principle. Moreover, it was observed that the basicdoi:10.5772/67784 fatcat:ktnprpq62rgbxfkfaqngriw5y4
