Recent improvements in image acquisition in multiple modalities is driving many facets of science, but none more than the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. With these improvements come also new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations that seek to address old and new clinical challenges. These clinical challenges, in turn, can motivate new advances in technical image acquisition and processing; the result is a powerful synergy that brings together scientists and engineers with very diverse training and skills. The faculty, students, and staff of the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute seek to identify and pursue new opportunities for collaboration based on state of the art computational science by identifying compelling biomedical problems that could benefit. In this presentation, we will discuss the overall approach of SCI and how it benefits from and adds value to biomedical research in the brain and heart. Specific application problems will include bioelectric source location in the brain, simulation of cardiac defibrillation in children, and MRI based management of patients with atrial fibrillation. All these examples are based on elements of a general purpose image based modeling pipeline we have developed.
