Contents Patient Specific Modelingof the Cardiovascular System; Foreword; Preface; Contents; Contributors; Chapter 1: Integrating State-of-the-Art Computational Modeling with Clinical Practice: The Promise of Numerical Methods; Chapter 2: Patient-Specific Modeling of Cardiovascular Dynamics with a Major Role for Adaptation; Chapter 3: Patient-Specific Modeling of Structure and Function of Cardiac Cells; Chapter 4: Studies of Therapeutic Strategies for Atrial Fibrillation Based on a Biophysical Model of the Human Atria; Chapter 5: Patient-Specific Modeling for Critical Care.
Summary The main purpose of the book is to demonstrate the design of a variety of patient-specific models within the cardiovascular system in computational biology. The maturation of computational biology could lead to a new approach to medicine. During the last five to ten years, there have been many improvements in diagnostic medical technologies such as multi-slice cardiac CT imaging, 3-D electroanatomic mapping, and many types of applications of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (i.e. magnetic resonance tagging and diffusion tensor imaging). Combined with more powerful computing resources and more accura.
