As indicated, the digital patient will rely on VPH technology being developed today. The following video gives an example of aorta avatar modelling. The aorta is the blood vessel that takes oxygenated blood away from the heart and distributes that blood to the rest of the body. Because of the aorta's central importance in blood distribution, diseases of the aorta can be devastating and impact on many organs including the brain, kidneys, intestines, and so on.
