A proof of concept workflow is demonstrated to easily translate 3D medical image data into finite element (FE) simulation ready phantom models. First, novel methods are used to drastically reduce manual segmentation time for a virtual population. Next, using Simpleware software, the segmented voxel datasets are extracted into faceted 3D CAD objects for tissues, while simultaneously maintaining conformal multi-tissue interfaces. Finally, the 3D CAD geometries are demonstrated to be readily compatible in a commercial 3D electromagnetic simulator, ANSYS HFSS.
