Reconstruction of Heart Muscles

5. Modeling Heart Muscles with Variable Thicknesses

heart-muscle

Variable thickness muscle wall: (a) The borders along the join of different components to create a smooth blending. (b) The boundary mesh of the constructed muscle wall. (c, d) Two different cuts of the tetrahedral finite element mesh to show how the thickness around different components vary depending on the weights. For example, the muscle is thickest around the left ventricle (cyan) and is also considerably thicker around the right ventricle (pink) compared to other compartments.
