Confocal-based cell-specific finite element modeling extended to study variable cell shapes and intracellular structures: the example of the adipocyte.


This communication extends the recently reported cell-specific finite element (FE) method in Slomka and Gefen (2010) in which geometrically realistic FE cell models are created from confocal microscopy scans for large deformation analyses. The cell-specific FE method is extended here in the following aspects: (i) we demonstrate that cell-specific FE is… (More)
