Biomedical Simulation Lab (Steinman Lab)

specialdopAt 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. Currently research is focused on the use of angiographic imaging and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to identify hemodynamic and geometric “risk” factors for atherosclerosis and aneurysms; and the development of commercial and open-source medical imaging simulation environments.
