Visualization Friday Forum

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the largest underlying cause of mortality in the United States, causing 1 in every 3 deaths and incurring an estimated $316 billion dollars in direct and indirect costs. The treatment planning process for procedures to treat CVD depends on having accurate and efficient visualization of patient-specific vascular geometries. The interaction of physicians with such 3D models could be also enhanced through the immersive effects of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) devices, which have shown promise in other areas of medicine. In the Randles Lab, we create personalized blood flow simulations using our fluid dynamics solver, HARVEY. This talk explores Harvis, a software we have developed to help build our simulations, and visualize blood flow in an intuitive and immersive manner with the aid of VR/AR devices.

Note: This talk will not be recorded or streamed.
