Cardiovascular Diseases: Computer Model Improves Therapy

Graz University of Technology (Austria), Christoph Pelzl, January 22, 2021

Researchers at Austria's University of Graz and the Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) have generated digital twins of human hearts, which doctors can use to pre-model optimal therapies and improve the likelihood of successful treatment for cardiovascular diseases. Imaging algorithms construct a digital twin from diagnostic data, which provides information to help understand the individual clinical situation and consider various therapeutic scenarios. TU Graz's Thomas Pock said computerized heartbeat simulation requires calculating millions of factors, and demands "complex mathematical procedures, special algorithms, and special hardware that can perform billions of computing actions per second." The new technique can routinely produce anatomically accurate digital twins of patient hearts in clinical environments.  ... '
