Coronary Artery Ostia Right Coronary Artery Left Coronary Artery Left Anterior Descending Artery Circumflex Artery 3D Modeling

These 3D models of perfusion fixed human hearts display the varying anatomy of the coronary artery system.  A contrast dye was injected through the right and left coronary ostia into the coronary arteries.  Images were acquired through computed tomography and were edited in Mimics and 3-matic, programs developed by Materialise.

Red = Hearts with no known conditions
Pink = Hearts with no medical history available or unrelated cardiac conditions
Fuchsia = Hearts with history of hypertension
Orange = Hearts with history of Coronary Artery Disease
