Siemens
 
STAR-CCM+ can be used to assist doctors in making difficult clinical decisions by providing key insight into symptomatic behaviors. In respiratory medicine in particular, the flow within the patient's airway can be simulated, highlighting how an obstruction is affecting breathing. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models, based on anatomical data sets of the mouth cavity, nasal cavities or lungs, are also successfully used to design better inhalation devices. With this, modeling drug transport can now be used to support clinical trials.
