Abstract: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac disease with high rates of morbidity, leading to major personal and NHS costs. Computer modeling of AF using a detailed cellular model with realistic 3D anatomical geometry allows detailed investigation of the underlying ionic mechanisms. We developed a 3D virtual human atrium combining cellular electrophysiology and anatomical detail. The multi-variable nature of the system makes the 3D simulations computationally intensive. The computational demands require access to resources of High Performance Computing (HPC) and High Performance Visualization (HPV). Work has been carried out using multiple processor machines with shared memory architectures. Higher resolution anatomical models will increase requirement of HPC resources (~10 teraflops).
