This movie presents a research project – called CardioSense3D – focussed on constructing mathematical and numerical models of the heart, and then personalising these models using clinical measurements specific to each patient. As cardiovascular diseases represent the leading cause of death in industrialised nations, the objective is to facilitate diagnosis and to better anticipate the effects of different therapeutic strategies. The various results and ongoing work described concern modelling and simulation aspects, as well as what can be referred to as “model-data coupling” with clinical measurements.
