An article was recently published in which CardioSolv’s CTO Gernot Plank worked with partners to scale simulations with our CARP simulator to 16000 cores. This is an important step toward simulating the human heart in real time, eventually for the … Continue reading
I wish I had this when I was working on my PhD. Check it out!
Most of the members of CardioSolv will be attending this year’s Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Sessions in San Francisco, May 4-7, 2011. If you would like to discuss heart simulation with us, this would be an excellent time to do … Continue reading
Some time ago I wrote a brand-new, MPI-based, parallel data post-processing tool for analyzing the output of our CARP simulator. I have now uploaded it to github here. It is modular in design (as the name implies) and it is … Continue reading
CardioSolv is now offering trial licenses of our CARP simulator. If you would like a trial license, please sign up here.
CardioSolv was recently awarded a Phase I Small Business Initiative for Research (SBIR) grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to help us develop our technologies into forms more readily usable by the pharmaceutical and device industries. Here’s the project … Continue reading
CardioSolv is looking for input from clinical electrophysiologists on a new project that we’re pursuing. If you’d like to get in on the ground level of development for this exciting project, please contact us!. We hope to be able to … Continue reading
If you work in, or are otherwise interested in cardiac simulation, what meetings do you attend? Heart Rhythm? AHA? Cardiostim? BMES? Would you like to see CardioSolv there? If so, what would you like to see from us? Of course, … Continue reading
Generation of heart (or other tissue) models from medical images requires several steps. In particular, masking and cleanup, segmentation, and meshing. Masking and cleanup of image stacks is easily done with something like ImageJ. Be warned — if you are … Continue reading
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are the best solution to a number of electrical problems with the heart, and result in a measurable improvement in quality and length of life for those that need them. However, a recent study entitled Evaluation of Early … Continue reading
