FEM simulations on four dimensional meshes have been shown to be quite accurate. In this abstract, we propose a multi-layer approach for generating four dimensional meshes from binary medical images. Our technique takes advantage of both the faster shared-memory layers when the communication cost is high, and the larger (but slower) distributed memory layers when a lot of memory allocation is required.
