Multi-level patient-specific artery and atherogenesis model\nfor outcome prediction, decision support treatment, and\nvirtual hand-on training

Objective

ARTreat targets at providing a patient-specific computational model of the cardiovascular system, used to improve the quality of prediction for the atherosclerosis progression and propagation into life-threatening events that need to be treated accordingly. ARTreat will provide a three-level patient model describing the 3d arterial tree anatomy, the patient-specific blood flow and blood particle dynamics and the biological processes that lead to the creation and progression of atherosclerotic plaques. ARTreat will apply the developed patient-specific model on two main applications: the clinical decision support and the training. ARTreat will produce two decision support tools to assist clinical cardiologists into providing personalized treatment selection and real-time, on- the-fly advice during invasive interventions, such stent positioning. The aim is to minimize future therapy costs, by providing higher than even possible personalized treatment support. The same patient-specific model will also be used to develop a real-case simulator training, which will support realistic hands-on skill development training to clinical cardiologists. Finally, ARTreat is coupled with advanced clinical support tools for plaque characterization, and the discovery of new knowledge; associations among heterogeneous data, that can improve the predictive power of the patient-model. It thus supports the medical expert into programming the accumulated knowledge into the existing model and generating an adaptive patient-specific computational tool. Key market players AGFA and SORIN will exploit the ARTreat applications to provide new sophisticated solutions to their product range, while all academic and ITcompany partners will accumulate significant experience on the new generation patient-specific healthcare services.
