We demonstrate a volumetric technique for calculation and visualization of great vessel wall shear stress (WSS) from 4D Flow MRI data. Traditional methods for WSS have relied on planar sections of the data followed by explicit manual segmentation of vessel boundaries, which can be labor-intensive to perform. We propose a volumetric strategy for computation and visualization of WSS, which may facilitate its clinical translation.
