Computational models can be used to predict the blood pressure and blood flow in a region of interest within the vascular system. To provide an accurate model, it is important to consider the organ-specific properties of the region of interest and apply those properties to the model. The pulmonary vasculature has several organ-specific properties, including the vessel compliance, specific geometry and respiratory process [1,2].
