Brief Description: Finite Element meshes male and female thoraces, generated from the visible human dataset, as part of the GREIT framework (Adler et al 2009).

Adult FEM models were generated from the visible human body dataset (Ackerman 1998, Proc. IEEE 86 504−11) which provides radiological and photographic images. The photographic images were used to generate the surface models from which the finite element meshes were generated. The surface models were created using AliasStudio (Autodesk) from the photographic images of the thorax spaced 20 mm apart. The method used is similar to that used to generate models of the human head for EIT of the brain function (Tizzard et al 2005, Physiol. Meas. 26 S251−61).
