The characteristic depressed hemodynamic state and gradually declining circulatory function in Fontan patients necessitates alternative postoperative management strategies incorporating a system level approach. In this study, the single-ventricle Fontan circulation is modeled by constructing a practical in vitro bench-top pulsatile pediatric flow loop which(More)
Computer hardware costs are the limiting factor in producing highly accurate radiation dose calculations on convenient time scales. Because of this, large-scale, full Monte Carlo simulations and other resource intensive algorithms are often considered infeasible for clinical settings. The emerging cloud computing paradigm promises to fundamentally alter the(More)
Metacomputing consists of the idea of connecting geographically distributed high performance computing resources in a seamless manner. This allows a single user to access a disparate set of resources from a single machine, with little or no knowledge of the underlying connections and protocols. The primary benefits of using a metacomputing system are(More)
