Modules in Cardiac Modeling: Mechanics, Circulation, and Depolarization Wave
Numerical models of various aspects of cardiac function are useful in simulating pathologies and therapies. Such models cannot be easily combined because of differences in input and output structure. To harbor the different models we have developed a framework, consisting of a graph network with nodes (compliant cavities) and edges (flow ducts). Thus using a toolkit of modules facilitates tailored cardiac modeling.
