The circulatory disease has been currently classified as disease which has been frequently found inthe advanced countries due to aging and known as the main cause of death. According to WHO statistics, average populations who died due to circulatory disease in every year is equivalent to 1/3 in death of the world population that is about 1.67 million. Clinician has also usually taken a diagnostic method that detects the degree of vascular stenosis detected by using pressure drop within the vessel, which is directly measured by inserting pressure wire into the vessel, so called, FractionalFlow Reserve (FFR). However, an invasive interventional method, used to obtain the FFR value, has some practical problems: 1. Pressure wire is expensive for the patients to pay. 2. The method using pressure wire has been physical burden, which has induced artificial stenosis. 3. When doctors need to decide a treatment plan, sometimes he or she misses an appropriate timing for treatments because it is time-consuming and inefficient work-up steps itself.
In our research, we perform flow simulations using supercomputer facilities without other inspections after obtaining three dimensional vessel geometry model using the medical image. Through these modeling and simulation procedures, it can be expected to build the regular strategy for determination of the medical surgery plan. In addition, we summarize the technical elements for development of simulation techniques and prove that the proposed scheme can be applied to real clinical cases.
First of all, patient’s medical imaging data are aligned to the coordinate system suitable for a 3D modeling according to electrocardiography. We then import a patient’s medical image which was converted to the dicom file format, and extract a vascular area through boundary detection from each medical image. After that, we perform a noise rejection, region growing, and partial editing. Upon completion of medical image processing, we generate the cardiovascular 3D mesh model through marching cube algorithm. The 3D models after modified are stored as STL, IGES (CAD file format) and they can be used in the multiple applications.
