Modeling   Simulation   Visualization

SCIRun is a Problem Solving Environment (PSE), for modeling,
simulation and visualization of scientific problems.
SCIRun now includes the biomedical components formally
released as BioPSE, as well as BioMesh3D.


Picture_1SCIRun is a problem solving environment or "computational workbench" in which a user selects software modules that can be connected in a visual programing environment to create a high level workflow for experimentation. Each module exposes all the available parameters necessary for scientists to adjust the outcome of their simulation or visualization. The networks in SCIRun are flexible enough to enable duplication of networks and creation of new modules.

Many SCIRun users find this software particularly useful for their bioelectric field research. Their topics of investigation include cardiac electro-mechanical simulation, ECG and EEG forward and inverse calculations, modeling of deep brain stimulation, electromyography calculation, and determination of the electrical conductivity of anisotropic heart tissue. Users have also made use of SCIRun for the visualization of breast tumor brachytherapy, computer aided surgery, teaching, and a number of non-biomedical applications.
