The PASSPORT project (Ref 223894, ) is a 3-year (2008-2011) STREPS European project which aims at developing patient-specific models of the liver. Those models should integrate anatomical, functional, mechanical, appearance, and biological descriptions of the liver. More precisely, it is expected to simulate the liver deformation due to breathing as well as the liver regeneration after hepatectomy.

INRIA is involved in this project through the teams Alcove, Evasion and Asclepios and around the software platform SOFA which will serve as the integration plartform for the project. IRCAD (Strasbourg) is the project leader which also gathers TUM (Munich, Germany), UCL (London, UK), ETH (Zurich, Switzerland), ICL (London, UK), INSERM (Paris), ULP (Strasbourg), IZBI (Leipzig, Germany).

One plenary meeting has been organized in 2009 in Strasbourg. We have collaborated with the Fluid Mechanics department of the University of Strasbourg in order to build a realistic biomechanichal model of the liver and integrate it in the SOFA platform.
