Biomedical Visualization

Artery blue greenWe 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.
