In a recent publication in Radiology, CMIV researchers presented a  study where they used information from computer tomography images to simulate the heart function of an individual patient.

Modeling methods originally used to simulate flowing fluids and turbulence in the aeronautical and motor industries were applied on flow through the patients heart and blood vessels. The modeling methods simulated the blood flow in a patient’s heart with the aid of high-resolution CT images. The calculations needed were performed aided by computing power available at the National Supercomputer Centre (NSC) at Linköping University.

The results were verified against 4D flow MRI and the CT simulation provided very similar flow patterns and measurements compared with MRI.
