Abstract


Purkinje network of a Magnetic Resonance Image cardiac dataset has been extracted using 3-D slicer. From that extracted model simplified circuit of Purkinje network has been generated with help of simplified version of cable theory. Also the length of each node of human heart has been identified using landmark tools of 3-D slicer. The action potential propagating through the network was simulated in MATLAB and the circuit was simulated in Multisim. This simulation was then represented with help of a 3-D printed heart visualization module. The main intention of designing a circuit equivalent to Purkinje network was achieved. However, the pulse of circuit was found to be lower than the actual pulse generated by the Purkinje network.

Author Keywords: Purkinje network, 3-D slicer, Simplified cable theory, MATLAB, Action potential.
