Application: Computer-implemented soft tissue emulation system and method (Patent ID: US20240104276A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes a soft tissue emulation system that utilizes an artificial neural network to generate a digital twin of soft tissue based on imaging data and a biophysical model. The system can simulate the response of soft tissue to thermal or electromechanical stimuli over time, allowing for the representation of the tissue's behavior at different times. The system includes input and output interfaces to obtain imaging data and output representations of the tissue, respectively.

The system can emulate properties of various soft tissues such as cardiac or hepatic tissue, with specific modules for structural inference and biophysical model solutions. It can also simulate electromechanical properties of cardiac tissue based on electrophysiological information. Additionally, the system can emulate local temperature distribution when stimulated by heat sources and consider physiological properties like density, heat conductivity, and blood flow rate. Furthermore, the system can be used for ablation planning in hepatic tissue by generating electrode configurations based on tumor presence information and determining needle trajectories. The patent also covers a computer-implemented method and program product for soft tissue emulation, emphasizing the system's versatility and potential applications in medical imaging and treatment planning.
