Abstract
This study presents an approach to build a 3D vascular system of coronary for the development of a virtual cardiology simulator. The 3D model of the coronary arterial tree is reconstructed from the geometric information segmented from the Visible Human data set for physical analysis of catheterization. The process of segmentation is guided by a 3D topologic hierarchy structure of coronary vessels which is obtained from a mechanical model by using Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) probing. This mechanical professional model includes all major coronary arterials ranging from right coronary artery to atrioventricular branch and from left main trunk to left anterior descending branch. All those branches are considered as the main operating sites for cardiology catheterization. Along with the primary arterial vasculature and accompanying secondary and tertiary networks obtained from a previous work, a more complete vascular structure can then be built for the simulation of catheterization. A novel method has been developed for real time Finite Element Analysis of catheter navigation based on this featured vasculature of vessels.
