Improvements in Simulations of Aortic Loading by Filling in Voids of the Global Human Body Model

General Motors Company-Anderson de Lima, Jiri Kral
  • Technical Paper
  • 2019-22-0021
Published 2020-03-31 by The Stapp Association in United States
Internal organ injuries of the chest are one of the leading causes of deaths in motor vehicle crashes. The issue of initial presence and dynamic formation of voids around the heart and aorta is addressed to improve kinematics, force interaction and injury risk assessment of these organs of the Global Human Body Model. Steps to fill the voids are presented.

Published 2020-03-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

As the geriatric population is expected to balloon in the coming decade, so too will rates of heart disease in the United States. The demand for prosthetic heart valves and other cardiac devices — a market that is valued at more than $5 billion dollars today — is predicted to rise by almost 13 percent in the next six years.

Published 2020-03-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

NASA Langley Research Center has developed a novel laser vibrometer sensor for monitoring cardiac activities remotely and non-invasively — specifically, heart functions of valve/chamber opening and closing cycles (cardiac cycles). The device provides precise magnitude and timing information, non-invasively and away from the heart region without interference by patient garments.

  • TBMG-35773
Published 2020-01-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

National Institutes of Health researchers, along with researchers at Siemens, have developed a high-performance, low-magnetic-field MRI system that vastly improves image quality of the lungs and other internal structures of the human body. The new system is more compatible with interventional devices that could greatly enhance image-guided procedures that diagnose and treat disease, and the system makes medical imaging more affordable and accessible for patients.
