3D VR blood flow to improve cardiovascular care: 3D interface provides cellular-level, full-body blood flow modeling to study and treat cardiovascular disease

Biomedical engineers are developing a massive fluid dynamics simulator that can model blood flow through the full human arterial system at subcellular resolution. One of the goals of the effort is to provide doctors with a virtual reality system that can guide their treatment plans by allowing them to simulate a patient's specific vasculature and accurately predict how decisions such as stent placement, conduit insertions and other geometric alterations wi..
