Recently the ESR09 Martino Andrea Scarpolini presented the results of his activities in the context of the MeDiTATe project at the Workshop “Biomeccanica dei trattamenti endovascolari”. The workshop took place on the 9th of May 2023 at the University of Pavia, Italy.

The title of the talk is “Data-Driven FSI simulation of Ventricle and Aorta integrating in vivo and in silico data”.

An abstract describing the presented work is reported below:

The integration of in silico and in vivo data is crucial to the development of high-fidelity digital twins of the cardiovascular (CV) system but is a challenging task that requires specific imaging techniques and in silico setups. Advancements in imaging technologies are making it possible to gather a large amount of patient information. In parallel, in silico models are becoming a useful tool to simulate patient-specific conditions, treatments and therapies. However, the latter models require a large amount of physical parameters to be known, which are often very difficult to measure in vivo. In this study, we used data-assimilation techniques to merge high-resolution temporal CT scans with fluid structure interaction (FSI) simulations, resulting in the creation of a high-fidelity digital twin of the left ventricle (LV) and aorta system of a patient.
