FDA Seeks Virtual Heart

Much akin to things like virtual twins, and high quality simulation systems.   I remember work at USCD that aimed at constructing whole body systems that contained models of key components.  we provided some support.  Might be a good place to start based on learnings then.

FDA Seeks Virtual Heart to Test Medical Devices

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is working with French software company Dassault Systemes to develop a virtual model of the human heart for evaluating new medical devices and treatments. The project brief said, "The FDA intends to develop a generic medical device that will be virtually implanted in the whole human heart computational model." Researchers will design, build, and physically and virtually test this device on virtual populations and devise new techniques for integrating digital evidence from simulations with physical evidence from actual patients. The FDA's ultimate goal is to apply digital evidence and computer models to accelerate regulatory evaluation and approval, ahead of the market rollout of new medical solutions.  ... "
