Project description

‘Dynamic scanning particle image velocimetry’ is a PIV based method to quantify all three components of the velocity vector in a given volume. In this project, this technology is being used to visualize the complex three dimension blood flow in a experimental in vitro model of the human left heart. The information can be used as reference date for validating computationals simulations
