Biomedical Simulation Lab (Steinman Lab)

At the Biomedical Simulation Laboratory (BSL), we strive to seamlessly integrate medical imaging and computer modeling to improve the detection, risk assessment, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Image-based CFD, whereby medical imaging provides ‘patient-­specific’ boundary conditions for computational fluid dynamics simulations, is used in clinical studies to relate hemodynamic forces to markers of vascular disease or clinical endpoints. Virtual imaging, whereby simulations of the medical imaging physics are performed in ‘virtual patients’, is used to understand and exploit the impact of complex anatomy and flow on the appearance of medical images.
