The CST STUDIO SUITE® product family allows arbitrary voxel data sets to be imported. The most prominent and most often used one is the anatomical data set of the Visible Human Project® . The so-called Voxel Man is based on a dissected male corpse sliced into several thousand layers.
Figure 1: Human Body Interface - different tissues and different resolutions
The import is performed via an interface that allows different resolutions (1mm to 8mm) and different material tissues to be chosen. The area of interest can be selected a priori in a side view and front view.
Figure 2: Direct access to the material properties via navigation tree in CST STUDIO SUITE
Once the model has been imported into the CST STUDIO SUITE, the materials are accessible via the navigation tree. Multiple selection of materials and re-assigning e.g. parameterized frequency dependent properties can be done.
