Abstract

A 3D biomechanical model of the human brain is being developed for predicting the tumor growth mass effect and improving image registration of various normal to tumor-bearing images. A digital mesh generation program and a hyperelastic compressible Mooney Rivlin material were used. Boundary conditions are imposed with the outer surface of the brain fixed and the ventricles assumed to have zero pressure.
