Researchers model cardiac waves using graphics processing units

Using graphics processing chips designed for gaming applications and software that runs on ordinary web browsers, researchers are modeling deadly spiral wave heart arrhythmias on personal computers – even high-end smartphones. That could put the real-time 3D modeling into the hands of clinicians who may one day use the system to diagnose and treat these abnormal heart rhythms.
