About this book

This volume addresses topics including: analysis of form and function of the mammalian lung by scientific computing; generation of a computer lung model; morphological analysis and representation of the branching pattern of mammalian lung; functional simulation of gas transport; 3-D visualization of an acinus; colour-coded visualization of gas transport; new insights into form and function of the lung; new morphological techniques.


Confocal imaging of an acinus; 3-D analysis of a complete, highly resolved respiratory unit; 3-D visualization of microscopic volumes of lung; discussion of 3-D analysis at respiratory units; analysis of the conductive part of lung; a computer lung modeller; computational physics applied to a bronchial tree model; model predictions; discussion of structural modelling and functional simulation.
