Hi Gowry

This sounds like an excellent task for our tools, Seg3D, Cleaver, and SCIRun and I wonder if you know that we teach a course in image based modeling in July that would provide a very nice opportunity for you to learn all the tools you need.  We teach about basic image analysis, segmentation, model construction, and bioelectric field computations with SCIRun. 

Sadly the deadline for fellowships was last weekend but there will still be openings through the regular registration mechanism. 

Best regards,

Rob MacLeod, PhD

Hi Ayla,

Thank you for the quick response.Intel(R) HD graphics Family and windows 7 is the graphic card and os I am using currently.I am doing my master studies under the project titled "Current Distribution Modelling in Tissues Using Finite Element Analysis". I have to develop a realistic breast model  and then conduct FEA on it to see the feasibility of electrical bio-impedance technique in detecting breast cancer.

Do you have any suggestion on which software to use to both develop the realistic 3D model of the breast and to run electrical current simulation on it for finite element analysis(fea)? I've managed to get the 3D realistic breast phantom using the voxel data available online at . Is it possible to do it in the SCIRun/Biopse platform? On the same note, I'd be happy to directly contact you to clear my doubts if you could provide me your contact number.

Thank you once again and hope to hear from you soon .

As far as I can tell, the BioFEM powerapp computed a dipole forward simulation.  There is a network in the BioPSE examples that does that in the source code:
It doesn't do streamlines, and I'm not sure what else the powerapp did, but I'm sure the simulation is the same.

Hi Folks,

What is the name of the network that simulates the same behavior as the old powerapp BioFEM?

Hi Gowry,

We no longer support BioFEM. To address the SCIRun window disappearing problem, could you please tell me what operating system you're running and what graphics card you're using.

Re Software: SCIRun

Subject: BioFEM, Biomesh launching problem

Message: Hi,
I'm Gowry here and I would like to know on how to launch the BioFEM power package in the SCIRun as I cannot find BioFEM which is an executable file in the scirun 4.7 I recently downloaded. Apart from that, the scirun window screen always disappears all of a sudden.

Thank you so much and hope to hear from you soon!
