Computational Visualization of 4D Cardiac Flow
Dr. Robert Herfkens, MD, director of radiology at Stanford University, demonstrates how the new Quadro solutions can be used take MRI data from a heart patient, create vascular volumes and surfaces in 3D, then simulate and visualize the cardiac blood flow in real-time. Harnessing Quadro features such as large graphics memory, the combination of CUDA parallel computing
with OpenGL graphics, and 3D stereoscopic display
, this collaborative effort between NVIDIA, Stanford and Cyberheart offers non-invasive and interactive insights to abnormal blood flow patterns, enabling faster diagnosis.
