Seminar of Dr. Jess Tate from the University of Utah

We invite you to the seminar of Dr. Jess Tate from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, which will be held on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. in the meeting room of the Insttute of Measureent Science SAS, Bratislava, Dúbravská cesta 9.

The topic of the seminar is:

Uncertainty and Shape Modeling in Bioelectric Field Simulation


Simulating bioelectric fields with computer modeling has become increasingly more sophisticated, accurate, and relevant in both research and clinical applications.  These models have been developed to aid diagnosis and treatment of electrophysiological disorders in cardiac and neuroscience domains, including: epilepsy, Tourette’s syndrome, neuromuscular disfunction, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular tachycardia.   While the predictions needed from computer simulation may vary with each disease, all of these models need to capture the uncertainty of their respective predictions from which researchers and clinicians can derive confidence and accuracy information.  Additionally,  these models are based on geometry derived from medical imaging, introducing the possibility of inconsistencies and errors in shape that can be difficult to characterize.  This presentation will cover our work at University of Utah’s Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute and with our collaborators in which we apply uncertainty quantification and statistical shape modeling techniques to cardiac and brain modeling pipelines, providing technical and clinical insights that advance our understanding of the computer models and their applications.
