  7. Abstract:
  8. Kidney is one of the most complicated organs in terms of functionality and physiology due to its complicated unique vascular structure. Previous investigations have focused on specific characteristics like length and diameter. Most of these methods are based on Image Processing techniques which prevent a comprehensive study in growth and changes of the vascular system. Lindenmyaer system (L-system) is a parallel rewriting system and a type of formal grammar and had been used to create graphs and natural patterns. By absorbing the physiological characteristics of the kidney and integrating them into parametric L-system, a highly dense and accurate vascular system could be generated with few number of simple rules
