This special 2017 vortex half-dome edit is based on the longer 3D stereoscopic immersive installation Virtual Journey Through the Heart which I produced for the Deep Space 8K, Ars Electronica Science Center.
It shows the dynamic reconstruction of the blood flow of a healthy human heart. New imaging methods for flow visualizations as shown are integrated into software assistants to help doctors determine how the blood flow changes due to heart diseases without using a catheter. They help calculate how the blood pressure and shear forces on the wall of the blood vessels change for patients with heart valve problems.
