Scientists develop way to perform supercomputer simulations of the heart on cellphones

You can now perform supercomputer simulations of the heart’s electrophysiology in real time on desktop computers and even cellphones. A team of scientists from Rochester Institute of Technology and Georgia Tech developed a new approach that can not only help diagnose heart conditions and test new treatments, but pushes the boundaries of cardiac science by…
