Creation of a Realistic EndocardialStimulation Profile for the Visible Man Dataset

World Congress of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering 2009,, pp.04-09.1

For simulations of the ventricular activation se-quence it is important to have a realistic model of the excita-tion conduction system. In this work, we use a previously de-veloped method to create a physiological endocardial stimulation profile for the Visible Man dataset that imitates the role of the excitation conduction system. We evaluate dif-ferent configurations of the endocardial stimulation profile by checking forward calculated ECG features against literature standard values. Additionally, isochrone maps of selected stimulation profile configurations were compared to measured isochrone maps from Durrer et al. A stimulation profile that included Durrer’s sites of early endocardial activation showed the most realistic results.
