Healthcare Use Case: Medical Imaging Catheter
Virtual Design and Testing of medical imaging catheters by means of creating interacting device/human Digital Twins. To decrease the time to market for next generation medical devices, product development should be strongly supported by virtual design and testing by means of high-fidelity digital twins of these devices and human tissue (e.g., arteries). Our improved understanding of the device-human tissue interaction from these interacting digital models will lead to quantified loading conditions within the device, and consequently, to improved performance and reliability. In addition, we will be able to develop accelerated qualification tests and thus, reduce development cycles and materials usage. The use case will lead to quantification of credibility and accuracy of these interacting digital twins for virtual testing, as well as potential workflow and business value.
