Whole organ scale patient specific biophysical simulations contribute to the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of complex diseases such as cardiac arrhythmia. However, many individual steps are required to bridge the gap from an anatomical scan to a personal- ized biophysical model. In biophysical modeling, differential equations are solved on spatial domains represented by volumetric meshes of high resolution and in model-based segmentation, surface or volume meshes represent the patients geometry. We simplify the personalization pro- cess by representing the simulation mesh and additional relevant struc- tures relative to the segmentation mesh. Using a surface correspondence preserving model-based segmentation algorithm, we facilitate the inte- gration of anatomical information into biophysical models avoiding a complex processing pipeline. In a simulation study, we observe surface correspondence of up to 1.6mm accuracy for the four heart chambers. We compare isotropic and anisotropic atrial excitation propagation in a personalized simulation.
