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 National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute sponsored Open Source Medical Software Corporation (contract nos. HHSN268200800008C and HHSN268201100035C) and its university collaborators to build a repository (www.vascularmodel.org) including realistic, image-based anatomic models and related hemodynamic simulation results to address this unmet need.
