Development of Interactive Modeling System for the Computational Biomechanics Simulation using Medical Imaging Data
Biomechanical simulation using realistic geometric models of blood vessels is needed for elucidation of the cause of various vascular diseases such as atheroarteriosclerosis and aneurysm, teatment planning and evaluation, and medical device design. Methods to construct realistic models automatically from medical imaging data were introduced. Medical imaging data in the real world contains various artifacts, which make it difficult to construct realistic models automatically. We developed a novel modeling system to construct geometric models from medical imaging data interactively with directly using the operator’s anatomical knowledge and ability of space perception.
