Abstract
Voxelized anatomical models are widely used to simulate exposures of biological systems to radio frequency (RF) and other forms of directed energy. A voxelized model is made up of volume elements that completely describe the internal anatomical structures. Developing a model is a labor-intensive process of converting two-dimensional MRI or CT data into a three-dimensional voxelized description. This involves "segmenting" or identifying the tissue type or organ for each pixel in a two-dimensional data slice. Maintaining continuity in the third dimension can be challenging. The goal of this project is to create an editing toolkit capable of converting medical imaging data into a voxelized model suitable for exposure simulation studies of humans or laboratory animals.
