Computational Methods and Clinical Applications for Spine Imaging
This book contains the full papers presented at the MICCAI 2013 workshop Computational Methods and Clinical Applications for Spine Imaging. The workshop brought together researchers representing several fields, such as Biomechanics, Engineering, Medicine, Mathematics, Physics and Statistic. The works included in this book present and discuss new trends in those fields, using several methods and techniques in order to address more efficiently different and timely applications involving signal and image acquisition, image processing and analysis, image segmentation, image registration and fusion, computer simulation, image based modelling, simulation and surgical planning, image guided robot assisted surgical and image based diagnosis.
This is the first spine workshop conjunct with MICCAI, the primary conference in medical image analysisThe only proceedings volume to cover such a comprehensive topic in the fieldThorough coverage of topics and sub-topics
