Mathematics, physics, biology, and computer science are combined to create computational modeling, which studies the behaviors and reactions of complex biomedical problems. Modern biomedical research relies significantly on realistic computational human models or â€œvirtual humansâ€�. Relevant study areas utilizing computational human models include electromagnetics, solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, optics, ultrasound propagation, thermal propagation, and automotive safety research. These and other applications provide ample justification for the realization of the Visible Human ProjectÂ® (VHP)-Female v. 4.0, a new platform-independent full body electromagnetic computational model. Along with the VHP-Female v. 4.0, a realistic and anatomically justified Dynamic Breathing Sequence is developed. The creation of such model is essential to the development of biomedical devices and procedures that are affected by the dynamics of human breathing, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging and the calculation of Specific Absorption Rate. The model can be used in numerous application, including Breath-Detection Radar for human search and rescue.
