発明の名称 (英語) Modeling device, program, computer-readable recording medium, and method of establishing correspondence
発明の概要(英語) (US8095321)
A modeling device is disclosed that easily projects characteristic information obtained from an object onto a differently-shaped object, even if the object, from which the characteristic information is obtained, has a complex shape.
A modeling device in one embodiment of the present invention includes a virtually electrifying section to calculate an electric potential at a spot in a heart at the time when a predetermined voltage is applied to the heart, and a projecting section to project a fiber orientation onto a heart model created on the basis of shape information that is input to the input section.
The projecting section specifies a spot to be a target of projection on the basis of the electric potential obtained by the virtually electrifying section.
Use of the electric potential in specifying the spot makes it possible to easily project the fiber orientation onto any heart having complex and various shapes.
特許請求の範囲(英語) [claim1]
1. A modeling device, comprising: an input section configured to receive shape information on an object, and characteristic information,
the characteristic information indicating a correspondence between a spot in the object and a characteristic;
a processor; and
a storage unit storing executable code capable of causing the processor to implement a
virtually electrifying section configured to obtain by calculation, on a basis of the shape information that is input to the first input section, an electric potential at a spot in the object at a time when a predetermined voltage is applied to the object, and
a projecting section configured to project, onto an object model based on the shape information, the characteristic contained in the characteristic information,
the projecting section being configured to specify a spot in the object model on a basis of the electric potential obtained by the virtually electrifying means, onto which spot the characteristic is to be projected,
wherein the object is a heart and the characteristic includes a fiber orientation and/or a sheet orientation of a cardiac muscle cell.
[claim2]
2. The modeling device of claim 1, wherein: the characteristic contained in the characteristic information is an orientation-related characteristic;
the virtually electrifying section is configured to obtain by calculation an electric current orientation at a spot in the object at a time when the voltage is applied to the object, and sets a local coordinate system of the object on a basis of the electric current orientation obtained; and
the projecting section is configured to project the orientation-related characteristic on a basis of the local coordinate system set by the virtually electrifying section.
[claim3]
3. The modeling device of claim 1, wherein: the virtually electrifying section is configured to obtain (i) the electric potential at a spot in the heart at a time when the predetermined voltage is applied between an apex and a base and (ii) the electric potential at the spot in the heart at a time when the predetermined voltage is applied between an endocardium and an epicardium; and
the projecting section is configured to specify, on a basis of (i) the electric potential at the time when the predetermined voltage is applied between the apex and the base, (ii) the electric potential at the time when the voltage is applied between the endocardium and the epicardium, and (iii) an angle along a rotation orientation having a central axis extending in an orientation between the apex and the base, the spot in the object model, onto which spot the characteristic is to be projected.
[claim4]
4. The modeling device of claim 3, wherein: the local coordinate system is an orthogonal coordinate system;
a first coordinate axis of the local coordinate system extends in the electric current orientation at a time when the voltage is applied between the apex and the base;
a second coordinate axis of the local coordinate system is orthogonal to either of the first coordinate axis and an axis extending in the electric current orientation at a time when the voltage is applied between the endocardium and the epicardium; and
a third coordinate axis of the local coordinate system is orthogonal to either of the first coordinate axis and the second coordinate axis.
[claim5]
5. The modeling device of claim 1, wherein the storage unit further stores executable code capable of causing the processor to implement a geometry section configured to perform a geometry process on the object model on which the characteristic is projected by the projecting means; and
a display section configured to display the object model on which the geometry process is performed by the geometry means.
[claim6]
6. A non-transitory computer readable medium storing a program, the program including code executable by a computer to cause the computer to implement the input section, virtually electrifying section, and projecting section of the modeling device of claim 1.
