The combination of Sim4Life’s powerful radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic (EM) field (P-EM-FDTD) and temperature (P-THERMAL) solvers, high-resolution anatomical phantoms (ViP), and extensive exposure-field library (MRIxViP) together with specific tools (e.g., IMANALYTICS) for the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Technical Standard (TS) 10974 Tier 3 analysis provides the only all-in-one solution for investigations of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) implant safety according to IEC and ASTM standards.
High- and low-frequency solvers (P-EM-FDTD and P-EM-QS) permit the modeling and simulation of RF and gradient MRI coils. A unique set of specialized modules such as the Gradient Coil Designer, Birdcage Builder, SYSSIM, MUSAIK, MATCH, TXCOIL and T-CEM43, provide an unmatched framework for detailed design, optimization, and compliance evaluation of MRI systems.
High-resolution anatomical phantoms (ViP) and a validated thermal solver, combined with high-performance-computing (HPC) powered high- and low-frequency EM simulation solvers (P-EM-FDTD and P-EM-QS), enable the user to perform compliance safety investigations according to IEC 60601-2-33 guidelines. Sim4Life’s CEM43 is the first model that permits evaluation of MRI safety that include modeling of thermal tissue damage.
The P-EM-QS solver and the neuronal tissue (T-NEURO) models together with Optimizer V1 empower users to investigate neurostimulation and to design and optimize electroceuticals and neurostimulator devices. Functionalized ViP models with nerve trajectories, including a number of electrophysiological axonal models, are available as required.
The high-resolution Virtual Population (ViP) models, high- and low-frequency EM-field simulation tools (P-EM-FDTD and P-EM-QS), and a validated temperature solver (P-THERMAL) that takes into consideration the impact of blood perfusion permit the design of safe and successful application of medical devices for thermal therapies. A integrated tool for high-end semi-automatic image segmentation (iSEG) allows personalized treatment planning for patients.
Power transfer optimization and safety compliance evaluations are key applications possible with the combination of state-of-the-art high- and low-frequency solvers (P-EM-FDTD and P-EM-QS) as well as the ViP posable high-resolution anatomical phantoms. The unique capabilities of the Sim4Life POSER tool allows real use-case scenarios to be mimicked to obtain realistic exposure assessments of the tested wireless power testing (WPT) systems.
The large variety of posable ViP models, the HPC powered low- and high-frequency EM field solvers (P-EM-FDTD and P-EM-QS), and Sim4Life’s outstanding Optimizer V1 support the design, optimization, and compliance evaluation of devices communicating wirelessly at low and high frequencies, inside and outside the human body. All possible use scenarios can be taken into consideration right from the beginning while achieving the best designs in the shortest times.
An HPC-supported acoustic solver (P-ACOUSTIC) in combination with high- resolution ViP models and a temperature solver (P-THERMAL) that includes CEM-43-based thermal tissue damage modeling, provide a comprehensive toolset for image-based or anatomical model-based simulation of acoustic propagation and induced heating.
