A "typical" workflow that applies to many problems in biomedical simulation contains the following elements:
(i) Image acquisition and processing for a tissue, organ or region of interest (imaging and image processing),
(ii) Identification of structures, tissues, cells or organelles within the images(image processing and segmentation),
(iii) Fitting of geometric surfaces to the boundaries between structures and regions (geometric modelling),
(iv) Generation of three-dimensional volume mesh from hexahedra or tetrahedra (meshing), and
(v) Application of tissue parameters and boundary conditions and computation of spatial distribution of scalar, vector or tensor quantities of interest (simulation).
