Summary

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Huge effort has been made in multi-disciplines including medical imaging, computational modeling, biomechanics, bioengineering, medical devices, animal and clinical studies, population studies as well as genomic, molecular, cellular and organ-level studies seeking improved methods for early detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of these diseases. To capture the trend and innovations in computational cardiovascular modeling research, experts in various disciplines were invited to write papers covering important areas in biomedical research, including medical images, arteries, aneurysm, heart and lung issues, medical devices and treatment techniques, microscale studies at cell and molecule levels, and others. The special issue should have a noticeable impact in the computational cardiovascular modeling and biomechanical research.
