Implementation of an Agent-Based Parallel Tissue Modelling Framework for the Intel MIC Architecture

Figure 4

The Timothy framework has been recently extended to include blood vessels that supply nutrients to the tissue. This image originates from one of the first simulations of such type. It shows a vessel with streamlines of the concentration gradient of oxygen in the surrounding tissue. Realistic vessel shapes were obtained through processing of medical imaging data with the VisNow package [15].
