B. Verma. Analysis of clinical 3D activation time data for the personalization of human atrial models. Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Masterarbeit. 2012
The dissertation work has been performed on the Topic Analysis of 3D activation time data for personalization of human atrial models. In the initial phase, conduction velocity has been calculated for test environments in 2D and 3D planes, simulation data and then on clinical data. The simulation environments were created using fast marching level set method and cellular automaton, with different temporal resolutions. The output obtained from all the cases were then studied and comparision of con- duction velocity was made to check the accuracy of method adopted for conduction velocity calculation. The interpretation out of the results obtained during the study helps in obtaining the personalized human atrial model. This could help in patient specific study and therapy prediction, for example, individual model based ablation therapy and in future the arrhythmia study.
