Dassault Systèmes is exploring how technology is helping medicine cross a new frontier in the quest for saving lives.
Cardiovascular disease is single biggest cause of death around the world. Significant advancements in research and medical technologies in recent decades has provided us with a better understanding of its causes, and in identifying preventative measures and treatment options. However, the reality is that not every person is alike in their physical makeup, and each may respond to treatment differently.
What if we can use 3D computational modeling to explore each individual’s heart and guide the medical experts to create personalized therapies?
Teams of cardiovascular researchers, educators, medical device manufacturers, regulatory agencies and practicing cardiologists are now coming together to make this a reality.
We invite you to investigate these exciting developments in the videos and article above. You’ll see how technology is helping researchers reconstruct human anatomy in true 3D representations, leading to a better understanding of the body’s physics and removing constraints on research. This paves the way to virtually test treatment options without worrying about the impact on a patient. There is no limit to where this technology can take us in helping to solve the mysteries of the human body!
