A team of doctors from Heart Hospital in London working in cooperation with computer animators managed to develop a very realistic computer model that allows investigating theanatomy of human heart in perspectives that are not possible in real patients.
Thanks to specialists from the post-production company calledGlassworks, the computer model of the beating heart can be used to manipulate the image with the help of a computer mouse or keyboard.
One can rotate the virtual heart around any axis and observe the organ from both inside and outside. In addition, it is possible to set a normal beat of the heart, or imitate the effects of different conditions and diseases of the organ, informs New Scientist.
According to its developers, the computer model of human heart might also help medical students better understand the organ’s features and should give a helpful reference tool for heart experts.
