Patient-specific cardiac modelling can help in understanding pathophysiology and predict therapy effects. This requires the personalization of the geometry, kinematics, electrophysiology and mechanics. We use the Bestel-Clément-Sorine (BCS) electromechanical model of the heart, which provides reasonable accuracy with a reduced parameter number compared to the available clinical data at the organ level. We propose a preliminary specificity study to determine the relevant global parameters able… CONTINUE READING
