Paper Abstract

Myocardial electrical excitation propagation is anisotropic, with the most rapid spread of current along the direction of the long axis of the fiber. Fiber orientation is also an important determinant of myocardial mechanics. So myocardial fiber orientations are very important to heart modeling and simulation. Accurately construction of myocardial fiber orientations, however, is still a challenge. The purpose of this paper is to construct a heart geometrical model with myocardial fiber orientations based on CT and 3D laser scanned pictures. The iterative closest points (ICP) algorithms were used to register the fiber orientations with the heart geometry.
