Automatic patient-specific atrial model generation to study arrhythmia dynamics
Automatic model generation is still a challenge due to the concatenation of many individual steps needed to personalize an atrial model. The processes to create a volumetric mesh, generate fiber orientation and region tagging are individually implemented. The student needs to create an interface between them to work in a pipeline that outputs a model of the atria ready to be used by openCARP. The student will develop an algorithm which will take as an input the endocardial and epicardial atrial segmentation coming from clinical data to generate a 3D computational model including different regions and fiber orientation. Therefore, the student will compare the local activation time maps computed during sinus rhythm to assess the influence of different combination of left and right atria.
