Critical 2D-to-3D Transformation of NASA's VESGEN Software for Astronaut Health Countermeasures and Terrestrial Medicine/Ecological Commercialization

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Critical 2D-to-3D Transformation of NASA's VESGEN Software for Astronaut Health Countermeasures and Terrestrial Medicine/Ecological Commercialization
The challenge is to map and quantify 3D vascular remodeling in critically important tissues such as the astronaut and diabetic retina and mouse gastro-intestinal tract (GI) that display translational (not rotational) geometry. Innovative 3D maps of vascular patterning by VESGEN software move beyond the 2D ‘branching flatland’ into the vast majority of real world applications important to astronaut and terrestrial human health. VESGEN 3D will map vascular branching by dissecting these complex, fractal-based structures according to key insights derived from physiological vascular branching rules. VESGEN quantification of 3D vascular maps will support evidence-based decisions for space and terrestrial medical imaging and therapeutic development such as drug discovery. More »
