In various fields such as biomechanics and bioelectromagnetics, information in MR images is effectively utilized via finite element analysis (FEA) as an analytical tool. Although mesh generation is a critical step in FEA, most conventional mesh generators have limitations of handling complex biological geometries. In this work, we present an efficient and automatic mesh generation method that produces meshes adaptive to the content of MR images. The presented content-adaptive mesh (cMESH) generator could be a valuable tool toward the fields where MRI-based FEA is critical.
