Abstract

Buried within the human body, the heart prohibits direct inspection, so most knowledge about heart failure is obtained by autopsy (in hindsight). Live immersive inspection within the human heart requires advanced data acquisition, image mining and virtual reality techniques. Computational sciences are being exploited as means to investigate biomedical processes in cardiology.
