Computational Modeling of the Human Heart – Moving Towards Clinical Applications

Mathematical modeling of electrophysiology, elastomechanics and fluid dynamics of the human heart has reached a very good similarity between reality and simulation. Moving towards clinical applications opens new challenges: modeling of pathologies (arrhythmias, infarction,…), personalization of heart models, and optimization of therapeutic approaches (pharmacological, RF-ablation, pacemaker, ….). The lecture will give a review about where we are and which goals we can possibly reach in the coming years.

Olaf Doessel is Professor and head of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Before, he was head of a research department at Philips Research Laboratories in Hamburg. He has several honorary posts in international advisory boards. He is member of several academic societies, among them: the Academy of Science of Berlin-Brandenburg (BBAW) and the German Academy of Technical Sciences (acatech). He is senior member of the IEEE, Fellow of the International Academy for Medical and Biological Engineering (IAMBE) and Fellow of the European Alliance for Medical and Biological Engineering & Science (EAMBES). His main interests are bioelectric signals and fields in the human body, computer modeling of the heart, the inverse problem of electrocardiography, biosignal processing of ECG and electrograms, and new methods of medical imaging.
