The TSANZ VIC Branch Executive are pleased to announce the 2023 meeting Invited Keynote Speaker as below:

Professor Merryn Tawhai will present Digital humans for predicting patient-specific treatment outcome

We are establishing a ‘digital human’ framework with a focus on pulmonary disease, as a basis to interpret patient imaging and physiological data, and to predict patient response to treatment. Our approach utilises routinely-acquired computed tomography imaging to derive metrics for lung structure, from tissue heterogeneity to vascular morphometry and size to lung shape. From the same imaging we also derive geometric models of the lung, airways, and blood vessels that are specific to the individual patient, and introduce physiological measurements as boundary conditions for simulation of perfusion, ventilation, and gas exchange. This talk will consider quantitative multi-scale descriptions of lung structure as a tool for understanding lung tissue disease extent and progression - particularly in COPD and IPF - and the application of the digital human modelling framework to non-invasively estimate the extent of vascular remodelling in diseases that affect the pulmonary circulation.
