Software and Open Data Resources
Our lab uses computational methods to model the cardiovascular system. As such, we make use of a variety of software packages, some of which are listed in this page.
SimVascular is an open source software package providing a complete pipeline from loading in medical image data to constructing patient specific anatomic models and running blood flow simulations. The software originated in the lab of Charles Taylor at Stanford University and is now jointly support by our lab, Shawn Shadden (UC Berkeley) and Nathan Wilson (OSMSC).
Vascular Model Repository
The Vascular Model Repository is a library of computational models of normal and diseased human cardiovascular and pulmonary anatomy and input and output boundary conditions for various physiologic states. These models can be used to simulate cardiovascular and pulmonary solid and fluid mechanics and will provide spatially and temporally-resolved benchmark solutions that can be used by academic, government and industry researchers to verify their computational methods.
