Technical Research and Development

The overall organization of the Center is based on four technical cores supported and integrated by our SCIRun software, into which BioPSE (Biomedical Problem Solving Environment) is now fully integrated. This software provides the researcher with enormous capabilities and infrastructure, as well with a comprehensive set of building blocks allowing the creation of specific software pipelines for almost any imaginable task. The Center’s software encapsulates all the techniques that flow from the research cores.

Simulation Research Core

Image Based Modeling | Visualization | Simulation | Estimation Simulation In the context of the CIBC, simulation is defined as the prediction of the behavior of cells, tissues, and organs under simplifying assumptions over known anatomical domains in response to predetermined boundary or initial conditions. The overall goal of the CIBC, according to this definition, is to provide biomedical scientists with access to… Read more

Image Based Modeling Research Core

Image Based Modeling | Visualization | Simulation | Estimation Image Based Modeling The Image-Based Modeling TRD addresses the goal of using image data to construct geometric models effective for simulation, visualization, and quantitative analysis. While 3D images typically consist of regular hexahedral grids of measured data, models are geometric objects that must represent the underlying biological or anatomical… Read more

Estimation Research Core

Image Based Modeling | Visualization | Simulation | Estimation Estimation The Estimation TRD is concerned with the determination of biomedically meaningful parameters and values, which are either outputs of the other CIBC TRDs or are needed as inputs or parameters for those TRDs. The Estimation TRD is closely tied to the general theme of CIBC: individualized (subject-specific) imaging, modeling, and simulation. In… Read more
