Collection of Sixteen High-Quality Human Head CAD Models Generated with SimNIBS 2.1 Using Connectome Subject Data within MATLAB Platform
Description: Htet AT, Noetscher GM, Burnham EH, Nummenmaa A., Makarov S. Collection of Sixteen High-Quality Human Head CAD Models Generated with SimNIBS 2.1 Using Connectome Subject Data within MATLAB® Platform. BioRxiv preprint Nov. 29, 2018. doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/480103.
Each model contains skin, skull, CSF, GM, cerebellum, WM, and ventricles head compartments and possesses an “onion” topology: the grey matter shell is a container for white matter, ventricles, and cerebellum objects, the CSF shell contains the grey matter shell, the skull shell contains the CSF shell, and finally the skin or scalp shell contains the skull shell. The models are fully compatible with ANSYS ED FEM software, CST Studio Suite, Sim4Life/SEMCAD software, and other electromagnetic software packages.
The collection is based on MRI data from the Human Connectome Project (HCP) segmented using the SimNIBS 2.1/2.1.1 processing pipeline. The average number of triangular surface facets in a model is 866,000, the average triangle quality is 0.25, the average edge length is 1.48 mm, and the average surface mesh density or resolution is 0.57 points per mm^2. If necessary, a finer model mesh can be created for every head using available MATLAB tools.
