Computational cardiology plays an increasingly important role in elucidating the physiological and pathological mechanism(s) of normal and abnormal cardiac functions, guiding the development of new diagnostic technologies and treatment strategies, and predicting treatment outcomes. Recently, we called for paper submissions on the Research Topic of Multi-Scale Computational Cardiology. Twelve manuscripts were finally accepted for publications, where important scientific progress has been reported, covering computational fluid dynamics of circulation system (four papers), multi-scale cardiac electrophysiology modeling and simulation (three papers), and AI-related ECG signal processing (five papers). There are briefly summarized below.
