An investigation into the technical feasibility of computer based interactive simulation of the heart was conducted. The project is currently at prototype development phase, which is focused on the development of a virtual heart organ. The prototype will be customized for clinical skills training for interventional cardiology and electrophysiology, as well as for general cardiology education. Further development will incorporate an interface for handling catheter insertion for cardiac ablation and pacing.
