This webinar will take place in the next 04.July.2022 from 16:00-18:00 CEST via link (open to all researchers from our NN)
The Speaker will be Luca Dede, that will give a talk about Computacional Medicine and related industrial challenges.
We present our recent contributions to computational cardiology and precision medicine, with emphasis on multiphysics and multiscale modeling of the human heart. In particular, we couple several differential models that describe the physical processes determining the whole heart function, with focus on integrated electromechanical and electromechano-fluid models for the numerical simulation of the cardiac physiology. Our digital heart features state-of-the-art and accurate mathematical models, accurate space and time discretization methods, other than computationally efficient numerical coupling schemes. We present numerical simulations in the high performance computing framework, ranging from ventricular to whole heart simulations. We also present cardiac electromechanics emulators based on Machine Learning for real-time and accurate simulations towards the construction of cardiac digital twin. We also propose some clinical applications wherein our computational model of the human heart is successfully used to improve diagnosis and treatment, other than for supporting critical clinical decisions.
The industrial partner in the talk is MOXOFF https://www.moxoff.com/en/ . Dr. Luca Azzolin, will contribute with a part of the talk.
