Abstract : In this work, we develop an interactive framework for rehearsal and training in the context of cardiac catheter ablation, and for planning in the context of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT). To this end, an interactive and real-time electrophysiology model of the heart is developed to fit patient-specific data. The proposed interactive framework relies on two main contributions. An efficient implementation of cardiac electrophysiology is first proposed using latest GPU computing techniques. Second, a mechanical simulation is then coupled to the electrophysiological signals to produce realistic motion of the heart. We demonstrate that pathological mechanical and electrophysiological behaviour can be simulated.
