Lattice-Based Multi-Tissue Mesh Generation for Biomedical Applications


Fotios Drakopoulos and Nikos Chrisochoides.


Published in Publisher SPL25, Brigham and Women's Hospital & Harvard Medical School, April, 2016




This is a progress report of a 10 year-long effort in lattice-based, single-tissue [1], multi-tissue [2], and adaptive [3] mesh generator (CBC3D) that converts 3-dimensional segmented image data (e.g. MRI, CT, micro-CT) into good quality tessellations, for physics- based simulations [4,5]. The current state of the software generates tetrahedral or mixed FE meshes (tetrahedral, pentahedral, and hexahedral) of good quality with high geometric and topologic fidelity, and smooth surfaces. A single-tissue version of this software is open- source and available through ITK and 3D Slicer.
