Superior Pointing Acomm Aneurysm Variations
Anterior communicating artery aneurysms can form in one of four quadrants: Superior, Anterior, Inferior, and Posterior. This animation shows the wide range of aneuryms that fall into the superior quadrant. The A2 arteries as well as the aneurysm can move anteriorly and posteriorly and still remain in the superior quadrant. There are four aneurysm types described in this animation: Type 1, Type 2, Type 3a, and Type 3b.
To create the models I used a combination of Zbrush and Cinema 4D. The lighting and motion were all created and rendered in C4D.
