Respiratory movements study and simulation

Simulating human trunk respiratory movements can produce precious data for CAMI (e.g. displacements and deformation of abdominal organs). A model of the human trunk was built taking into account the main components (diaphragm, abdomen, lungs). Simulations were compared to real data obtained after the segmentation of dynamic MRI images.
