The Solid 3D Male Circulatory System includes the heart and pericardium as well as blood vessels serving the heart, head, trunk, pelvis, arms and legs. Blood vessel interior diameters were acquired through use of scans leveraging contrasting agent. Diameters, contours and wall thickness of the blood vessels of the heart, neck, vena cava, aorta and proximal femoral arteries conform to data obtained from medical scans. Vessel wall thickness throughout the rest of the body was developed by projecting the same ratio of interior vessel diameter to blood vessel wall thickness as observed in scans, down through the extremities.
The heart is a component of a larger anatomy collection that includes anatomical geometries taken from different scan subjects and integrated into a whole-body assembly of a 50th percentile (U.S. by height and weight) Caucasian male. Full-body scan data of this individual provided the over-all template or infrastructure for the entire assembly of the circulatory system constructed from various scan inputs - including contrast-dye scans of different scan subjects. The Heart was developed from an excellent heart scan of a subject different than the primary template subject. The resultant heart data was subsequently positioned, without changing the proportions or shape, to fit the 50th percentile male scan data.
