Systèmes (Paris:DSY)(Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the
3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital
Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today unveiled
the world’s first 3D realistic simulation model of a whole human heart.
Developed with a multidisciplinary team of heart experts to help combat
cardiovascular disease, the “Living Heart Project” will launch the next
frontier in diagnosing, treating and preventing heart conditions through
personalized, 3D virtual models.
Dassault Systemes unveiled the world's first 3D realistic simulation model of a whole human heart at the SIMULIA Community Conference in Providence, RI on May 20th. Using this model - and an immersive virtual reality environment as shown here - doctors, researchers, regulatory bodies and medical device manufacturers can now place themselves inside the heart to speed innovation and improve treatment of the world's leading cause of death: cardiovascular diseases.

According to recent research from the World
Health Organization, 17.3 million people died from cardiovascular
diseases globally in 2008, representing 30 percent of all global deaths.
The American Heart Association report, Forecasting
the Future of Cardiovascular Disease in the United States,
believes the real total direct medical costs of cardiovascular disease
will reach $818.1 billion within that same timeframe.
At the center of the project is a 3D heart model powered by Dassault
Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s realistic simulation applications.
Simulation experts from Dassault Systèmes have used the latest
advancements in simulation provided by the SIMULIA applications to
develop a comprehensive 3D heart model, capturing the electrical and
mechanical behavior of the heart in the most realistic and vivid way.
Today, the lack of realistic 3D human models limits researchers’ ability
to predict device behavior in humans. The Living Heart Project has
attracted a multidisciplinary community of medical researchers,
practitioners, device manufacturers and industry regulators who will
have access to 3D computational models to accelerate the translation of
research innovation into market-driven products and services.
Using echocardiogram, MRI and CT scan images, along with cardiac
research data, personalized 3D heart simulations will soon allow medical
professionals to better understand the behavior a patient’s heart
without the need for additional invasive diagnostic procedures.
“We live in an exciting time with the capacity to simulate how a
patient’s heart may respond to a wide range of interventions, sparing
that individual and many others the uncertainties of their procedural
outcome,“ states Dr. James C. Perry, Professor of Pediatrics at UC San
Diego and Director of Electrophysiology and Adult CHD at Rady Children’s
Hospital in San Diego. "This is true for those with congenital heart
defects, whose lives necessarily include many cardiac procedures, but
also for the larger population of people with heart failure, arrhythmias
and other structural abnormalities. This technology is a huge
advancement that will expedite the translation of our basic scientific
understanding of cardiac function into practical applications that
promote improved health and safety.“
The Living Heart Project is connecting many of the greatest minds in
cardiovascular modeling and simulation to solve the toughest challenges
using SIMULIA applications‘ leading capabilities for simulating complex
nonlinear behavior to produce the most realistic and reliable results
“Dassault Systèmes has been involved in many simulation projects over
the years – from automobile design simulations that help avoid serious
injury, to studies done alongside leading researchers that study the
impact of contact sports on the brain. The collaboration among
multidisciplinary experts that lead to the Living Heart Project ensures
it will have a lasting impact,” said Scott Berkey, CEO, SIMULIA Dassault
Systèmes. “With the contribution of leading researchers, medical
practitioners and regulatory agencies, this project is another example
of how our 3DEXPERIENCE platform can help improve product, nature and
This realistic human heart simulation will not only become a valuable
educational and translational tool to incite research innovation, but
may also lead to accelerated regulatory approval cycles, reduced
development costs for new and more personalized devices and will
ultimately enable early diagnoses and improve treatment outcomes.
“The Living Heart Project is a leading example of the value and
potential for realistic simulation to significantly impact healthcare in
a positive way,“ noted Bill Murray, President and CEO, Medical Device
Innovation Consortium. “The MDIC, a public-private partnership with the
FDA, is proud to participate in these types of innovative efforts.
The Living Heart Project is a model for how collaborations can work to
advance regulatory science in the medical device industry and improve
patient access to cutting-edge medical technology."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
