A system, method, computer-readable medium, apparatus, and device for simulating placement of an expandable device in a cavity is provided. For example, a three or more dimensional image of a cavity, e.g., a tubular cavity, geometry is acquired. A centerline of the cavity, and a perimeter of the cavity based on the centerline of the cavity and the three-dimensional image of the cavity geometry, are determined. The length of a wire of the expandable device as the wire rotates along the perimeter of the cavity in a deployment direction is determined. A pitch of the rotation of the wire based on a local diameter at the centerline site of rotation and in-air parameters of the expandable device is determined. A deployed device length of the expandable device along the centerline of the cavity is determined. A processor is usable to determine and/or calculate each of the above.
