Patient-specific blood flow simulations may provide insight into disease progression, treatment options, and medical device design that would be difficult or impossible to obtain experimentally. However, publicly available image data and computer models for researchers and device designers are extremely limited. The NHLBI sponsored Open Source Medical Software Corporation (Contracts No: HHSN268200800008C & HHSN268201100035C) and its university collaborators to build a public repository including realistic, image-based anatomic models and related hemodynamic simulation results to address this unmet need.
