Our new book presents recent research developments towards streamlined and automatic estimation of the digital twin of a patient’s heart by combining computational modeling of heart physiology and artificial intelligence. The book first introduces the major aspects of multi-scale modeling of the heart, along with the compromises needed to achieve subject-specific simulations. Reader will then learn how AI technologies can unlock robust estimations of cardiac anatomy, obtain meta-models for real-time biophysical computations, and estimate model parameters from routine clinical data. Concepts are all illustrated through concrete clinical applications.
The content of the book is the result of many years of research and hard work from the team, pushing the limit of personalized computational modeling of the heart. So proud of the team! Congratulations to everyone for this achievement! I hope you will enjoy reading the as much as we enjoyed writing it!
In April 2019, I had the amazing honor to give a talk on Artificial Intelligence at the prestigious French College de France in Paris, to present our work on AI and digital twin at Siemens Healthineers. Heartfelt thanks to the organization committee for inviting me to present our work.
AI has the potential to make medical exams and procedures more precise, from automatic patient positioning, assisted reading, therapy guidance and digital twins. So many possibilities, so many opportunities to help physicians and better treat patients!
What a honor to see our digital twin of the heart being presented to German Chancellor Angela Merkel by our CEO, Bernd Montag, and Michael Sen, chairman of Siemens Healthineers. So proud of the team! As our CEO Bernd Montag explained, “In the future, for example, this can be used to test the effects of pacemaker electrodes prior to implantation, and thus plan pacemaker therapy with much greater precision”.
