The Medical Digital Twin for Aneurysm Prevention and Treatment

Descrizione del progetto

Tecniche avanzate di prevenzione e trattamento specifiche per paziente degli aneurismi

Gli aneurismi sono potenzialmente fatali e in grado di provocare la morte in pochi minuti. Il progetto MeDiTATe, finanziato dall’UE, svilupperà gemelli digitali medici avanzati e basati su immagini di distretti cardiovascolari per una prevenzione e un trattamento specifici per paziente degli aneurismi. Il progetto formerà 14 ricercatori in fase iniziale di carriera nella simulazione multifisica ad alta fedeltà di ingegneria assistita da computer (CAE, computer-aided engineering) con funzioni di base radiali (RBF, radial basis function), nell’interazione in tempo reale con il gemello digitale attraverso la realtà aumentata, i dispositivi aptici e i modelli di ordine ridotto, negli strumenti HPC (comprese le GPU) e nei paradigmi basati sul cloud per l’elaborazione CAE rapida e automatizzata delle banche dati cliniche, nella gestione dei megadati per la popolazione dei dati di imaging dei pazienti e dei gemelli CAE ad alta fedeltà e nella produzione additiva di modelli fisici per la pianificazione e la formazione chirurgiche.

Obiettivo

MeDiTATe aims to develop state-of-the-art image based medical Digital Twins of cardiovascular districts for a patient specific prevention and treatment of aneurysms. The Individual Research Projects of the 14 ESRs are defined across five research tracks:
(1) High fidelity CAE multi-physics simulation with RBF mesh morphing (FEM, CFD, FSI, inverse FEM)
(2) Real time interaction with the digital twin by Augmented Reality, Haptic Devices and Reduced Order Models
(3) HPC tools, including GPUs, and cloud-based paradigms for fast and automated CAE processing of clinical database
(4) Big Data management for population of patients imaging data and high fidelity CAE twins
(5) Additive Manufacturing of physical mock-up for surgical planning and training to gain a comprehensive Industry 4.0 approach in a clinical scenario (Medicine 4.0)
The work of ESRs, each one hired for two 18 months periods (industry + research) and enrolled in PhD programmes, will be driven by the multi disciplinary and multi-sectoral needs of the research consortium (clinical, academic and industrial) which will offer the expertise of Participants to provide scientific support, secondments and training. Recruited researchers will become active players of a strategic sector of the European medical and simulation industry and will face the industrial and research challenges daily faced by clinical experts, engineering analysts and simulation software technology developers. During their postgraduate studies they will be trained by the whole consortium receiving a flexible and competitive skill-set designed to address a career at the cutting edge of technological innovation in healthcare. The main objective of MeDiTATe is the production of high-level scientists with a strong experience of integration across academic, industrial and clinical areas, able to apply their skills to real life scenarios and capable to introduce advanced and innovative digital twin concepts in the clinic and healthcare sectors.
