Background: Recently, advances in medical imaging, segmentation techniques, and high-performance computing have supported the use of patient-specific computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. At present, CFD-compatible atrium geometries can be easily reconstructed from atrium images, providing important insight into the atrial fibrillation (AF) phenomenon, and assistance during therapy selection and surgical procedures. However, the hypothesis assumed for such CFD models should be adequately validated. Read More
