Modeling of the Tongue
3D Finite Element Model of the tongue containing five muscles: genioglossus, transversus, verticalis, superior longitudinalis, inferior longitudinalis.
Five segments of genioglossus are highlighted
3. Predictive Model II
3D Finite Element Model of the tongue designed for Restore Medical Inc, Minneapolis, in conjuction with Reiner Wilhelms-Tricarico, Paul Buscemi, Mark Carlson, for the purpose of modeling sleep apnea. The model contains a jaw, hyoid and tongue with 3 extrinsic and 4 intrinsic tongue muscles (not palatoglossus); and three jaw/hyoid muscles (mylohyoid, geniohyoid, digastric).
