Using 3D Echo-based Modeling to Quantify in Vivo Ventricle Material Properties: A Multi-patient Study
Methods to quantify ventricle material properties noninvasively using in vivo data are of great importance in clinical applications. Echo image data were acquired from ten people, five patients with myocardial infarction (Group 1) and five healthy volunteers as control (Group 2). 3D finite element models were constructed to obtain ventricle stress and strain conditions. Material stiffening and softening were used to model ventricle active contraction and relaxation. Our results indicated thatdoi:10.1016/j.proeng.2015.11.267 fatcat:aeq62qmrirfqnk4ummiu6xxtma
