Framework Development for Patient-specific Compliant Aortic Dissection Phantom Model Fabrication

Type B aortic dissection is a life-threatening medical emergency that can result in rupture of the aorta. The aortic simulator is a hydraulic model that has physical and dynamical properties similar to the human circulatory system. This hydraulic model consists of a piston-in-cylinder pump (ViVitro Labs Inc.) that generates a physiologically accurate pulsatile flow (using a programmable waveform generator ViVigen) and a pump head, including a silicone ventricle membrane, mitral valve, and aortic valve. Results demonstrate that the deep-learning model can accurately capture the dissection geometry from patients’ medical images.
