In this work, a new methodology is proposed to automatically construct a structured finite element (FE) mesh from the information contained in patient-specific three-dimensional (3-D) images. Testing of the methodology is presented toward meshing of the human aorta from 3-D synthetic images as well as CT medical images. Promising results are obtained and future directions are discussed.
