Anatomically structured model of the human pulmonary circulation by Burrowes et al. The pulmonary arteries are colored red, and the pulmonary veins are colored blue. The geometry of the first 10-12 generations was manually segmented from MDCT imaging. The remainder of the vascular trees were generated using a volume-filling branching algorithm.
