A new way to understand the human body
Powerful knowledge about the human body results when we can visualize, test, understand and predict what cannot be seen, from the way drugs affect a disease to surgical outcomes before a patient is treated. Come experience what we mean!
Participate in a virtual reality experience that highlights the 3D anatomy of the brain and the heart.
Manufacturers of medical devices or pharmaceuticals can apply digital twins to develop new products and therapies or improve existing ones, as well as modify or redesign equipment that produces those goods.
Innovative ideas can be sustainably developed since concepts can be digitally simulated and evaluated before physical production.
A digital twin can also be applied in healthcare facilities; a digital replica of a hospital can help create a safer, more secure environment for employees and patients.
With such a positive contribution to sustainable innovation, business leaders are increasingly recognizing the power of digital twin technology.
But we can go further and not only simply do basic 3D modeling. We can now predict future behaviors and offer more precise and customized medicine specific to a patient...
A digital twin is a rather simple concept: it’s a virtual replication of a physical object. A digital twin can point to a problem, but it doesn’t provide insights on how to prevent it from happening again. That’s where the more evolved virtual twin comes in, with the help of a powerful simulation platform: the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
In Life Sciences & Healthcare, a virtual twin can create a 3D model of a body part taken from a unique patient’s medical information (MRI, CT scan, etc.) combined with a vast amount of data (beating heart, functional brain, and all kinds of health-related knowledge).
This results in an integrative reference of personal health information that makes healthcare more precise, and provides a holistic view to inform decisions about longer-term care. Because it’s based on the patient’s unique anatomy, the virtual twin can simulate different options for a medical approach and the potential consequences to that specific patient.
By assessing the alternatives in the virtual world, a medical expert can determine the right treatment approach to improve the health and quality of life of the patient.
Starting in 2014 with the Living Heart Project, Dassault Systèmes unique virtual twin experience uses science-based representations to develop and validate highly-accurate personalized human heart models. Constructed from an understanding of human heart tissue, structure and electrophysiology, and completely adaptable to mimic an individual person or a population, this virtual medical reference is in use around the world, helping to understand structural and hemodynamic heart disease.
A virtual twin has benefits beyond helping humans get more precise diagnoses and efficient treatments. Industry experts, researchers, and even patients can visualize, test, understand and predict what cannot be seen:
By analyzing the continuous cycle of data generated in the virtual and real worlds, we can make the life sciences & healthcare industry more efficient, innovative and sustainable.
Combining virtual technologies, analytics and artificial intelligence creates the conditions to revolutionize healthcare.
Enhancing understanding of the human body's complexity – from its DNA to tissues and organs to the organism as a whole – by connecting research from disparate teams around the globe
Advancing scientific innovation through unlimited modeling and biorealistic simulation to evaluate and test potential impacts on the human body, all before physical manufacturing
Continuously improving production processes, and developing capacity models to reduce time to market and adapt production lines as demands ebb and flow
Transforming the clinical trial experience for partners, including patients, sponsors, CROs and research sites through evidence generation, data management and decentralized clinical trials
Virtual twin experiences open up new possibilities for Life Sciences & Healthcare, enabling us to invent new ways of representing life by understanding and representing the invisible. This catalyzes core transitions in business processes, strategic planning and regulatory frameworks, as well as technological solutions, creating a shift to superior, patient-centric, outcome-driven experiences and processes to support this evolution. The result transforms how therapies are discovered, developed, produced, commercialized and used.
Dive into several initiatives such as Living Brain and Living Heart projects currently in use by researchers, device manufacturers and doctors to develop highly accurate virtual models for reproducing conditions and testing treatment options.
