About this book


Patient-Specific Modeling of the Cardiovascular System demonstrates the design of a variety of patient-specific models within the cardiovascular system and how they could be applied on a larger scale in the clinic. Patient-specific modeling will lead to a paradigm shift within medicine if applied successfully, yet many questions need to be answered before computational modeling can be fully integrated with standard care. In order to answer the most essential questions, a selection of the world’s leading computational modelers and clinicians have been brought together in this book. Healthcare professionals and medical students interested in the clinical application of patient-specific cardiovascular modeling will find Patient-Specific Modeling of the Cardiovascular System a valuable resource.
