Computational modeling in electrocardiography often requires the examination of cardiac forward and inverse problems in order to non-invasively analyze physiological events that are otherwise inaccessible or unethical to explore. The study of these models can be performed in the open-source SCIRun problem solving environment developed at the Center for(More)
Computational simulation has become an indispensable tool in the study of both basic mechanisms and pathophysiology of all forms of cardiac electrical activity. Such simulations depend heavily on geometric models that are either realistic or even patient specific. These models consist of a connected mesh of sometimes millions of polygonal elements that must(More)
Despite the growing use of implantable cardioverter de-fibrillators (ICDs) in adults and children, there has been little progress in optimizing device and electrode placement. To facilitate effective placement of ICDs, especially in pediatric cases, we have developed a predictive model that evaluates the efficacy of a delivered shock. Most recently , we(More)
