- A cardiac electrophysiological simulation tool is essential for the study of the modern virtual heart. However, there is not yet an ideal tool that can satisfy the requirements of rapidity, flexibility and interactivity. In this paper, we propose a simulation system to cope with this problem, which is (i) based on GPU for parallel computing, and very fast; (ii) flexible to embed various cell models and simulate multi-scale cardiac tissue; (iii) interactive and easy to use by computational steering. We designed a particular simulation case to show the convenience of computational steering and another test to compare the speed of our system to the traditional CPU-based method. These results suggest that our simulation system can be an ideal tool for the research of the virtual heart.
