We are working to apply novel visualization tools and techniques to leading edge biomedical research. Our current focus is collaborating with the Multiscale Hemodynamics Project which is a collaboration of doctors, physicists, and computational scientists working together to model human blood flow through the coronary arteries. The project's main objective is to develop and deploy a general purpose, multi-scale methodology to study blood flow patterns in complex environments corresponding to real heart arteries as measured by medical imaging for individual patients. This enables the non-invasive evaluation of a patient so that a doctor can take preventative measures (e.g., stent insertion) to prevent a heart attack.

Working in collaboration with cardiologists, radiologists, and physicists, we are developing visualization methods and tools for diagnosing heart disease.
