Realistic 3D Heart Simulator

Researchers at the National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center in Japan have developed a detailed 3D simulation of a beating human heart. The program can run on a small laptop to allow hospitals and other centers without supercomputers to conduct complex research and diagnoses. The 3D heart simulator incorporates computer graphics technology usually found in modern computer games. The program divides the human heart into 7,000 separate parts and then calculates how each section contracts.
