submitted by: lobosco
Over the last few years, computer models have become valuable tools for the understanding of the multi-scale and multi-physics phenomena that underlie the complex biophysical structures and processes of the heart. Our current computational models track the electro-mechanics of the heart from sub-cellular to the whole-organ level. Therefore, the models allow a better comprehension of important cardiac diseases, such as Ventricular Arrhythmia, Myocarditis, Infarct, Chagas Disease, Diabetes,...
