Numerical simulation has matured into a vital tool for scientific and medical research. Cheaper and safer than physical experiments, simulation allows us to tighten the loop between clinical insight, theoretical development, and model validation. UCNIA works in close collaboration with the Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC) in the area of simulation. Geometric models are useful in a staggering range of biomedical applications, from patient-specific treatment decisions for orthopaedic surgery and cardiology to basic scientific questions about blood flow and degenerative disease. Generating discrete, geometric representations for subsequent analysis is one of the important challenges in image-based modeling and simulation.
