    In the field of cardiovascular disease diagnostics and cardiovascular surgeries, efficient and accurate blood flow simulation is becoming an important supplementing tool in increasing diagnosis and surgery success rates. We implemented a complete solution for simulating the blood flow in a provided blood vessel model and visualizing the results in a variety of ways, providing informative display of simulated quantities and capable of real-time interaction. We exposed this functionality through a web-based application that does not require any local installations and communicates with a server performing the computationally intensive tasks. It is practical enough to enable fast workflow iterations and can be used by anyone without additional documentation because of its intuitive user interface. We also addressed the problem of data transfer from back-end to client front-end by developing a compression method to minimize the result file size specifically intended for visualization purposes, which was able to achieve good compression ratios and enabled efficient storage of large simulation results.
