Blood Flow Patterns in a Model of the Human Heart

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been keeping the principal cause of death among
Europe and the world. The systolic and diastolic heart failure (HF) is one of a major CVDs. Nowadays the clinical method for diagnosing systolic and diastolic dysfunction remains the assessment requires an invasive intra-chamber pressure-volume relation. The current work aims at providing a credible and cost-effective image based  numerical simulation method for pressure-volume relation as a an assistive approach for diagnosing the HF at an early stage.
