Breathing Thorax Simulation based on Pleura Behaviour and Rib Kinematics

Abstract : To monitor a lung mechanical model and then predict tumour motion we proposed a approach based on the pleura physiology. By comparing the predictions to landmarks set by medical experts, we observed better results with regards to the one obtained with approaches found in the literature. Beside, we focus on the rib cage kinematics, which play a significant role in the pleura outer-surface motion and therefore in the lung motion. We proposed a kinematic model of the rib cage based on the finite helical axis method and we show out interesting results.
