Precision medicine in human heart modeling: Perspectives, challenges, and opportunities


Mathias Peirlinck, Ellen Kuhl

International Symposium on the Living Heart and Virtual Twin for Humans

Precision medicine is a new frontier in healthcare that uses scientific methods to customize medical treatment to the individual genes, anatomy, physiology, and lifestyle of each person. In cardiovascular health, precision medicine has emerged as a promising paradigm to enable cost-effective solutions that improve quality of life and reduce mortality rates. In this talk, we will discuss how computational cardiac modeling paces the way forward towards precision medicine and how the Living Human Heart Model can facilitate clinical decision making, guide treatment planning, and accelerate device design.
