Computational Biomechanics for Medicine
One of the greatest challenges for mechanical engineers is to extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside traditional engineering, in particular to biology, biomedical sciences, and medicine. This book is an opportunity for computational biomechanics specialists to present and exchange opinions on the opportunities of applying their techniques to computer-integrated medicine.
Computational Biomechanics for Medicine: Models, Algorithms and Implementation collects the papers from the Seventh Computational Biomechanics for Medicine Workshop held in Nice in conjunction with the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention conference. The topics covered include: medical image analysis, image-guided surgery, surgical simulation, surgical intervention planning, disease prognosis and diagnostics, injury mechanism analysis, implant and prostheses design, and medical robotics.
Introduces a novel partnership between surgeons, biomechanical engineers, and experts in computational methods that helps overcome the limitations of traditional surgery Covers Computer-Integrated Surgery (CIS) systems and promotes a multidisciplinary approach that can improve clinical outcomes and the efficiency of health care delivery Provides a unique collection of new research in computational biomechanics gathered together in a single volume
