Multiphysic cardiac models give accurate simulations of normal and pathologic behavior of the heart. It can help to develop new treatments and medical devices. The complexity relies on both mathematical and geometrical models, so that HPC is needed to obtain accurate results using finite element method. From Magnetic Resonance Imaging a complete geometry, including atria and ventricles, is obtained through segmentation. Then the corresponding CAD is generated, where boundary conditions and properties of each heart region are fixed. Finally the volume mesh is built, essential to run simulations.
