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: Deformation and Flow collects the papers from the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention conference (MICCAI 2011) dedicated to research in the field of medical image computing and computer assisted medical interventions. 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
Karol Miller has contributed to three books for Springer.
