Image-Derived Human Left Ventricular Modelling with Fluid-Structure Interaction
In this study, we have developed a human left ventricular model using a hybrid immersed boundary- finite element description. The left ventricle model is built based on clinical cardiac magnetic resonance images, and completed with the inflow (left atrium) and outflow (aorta) tracts. The model is used to simulate the left ventricular dynamics with fully-coupled fluid structure interaction, with parameters optimised, and the results are in reasonably good agreement with the in vivo measurements.
