Patient-specific Modelling from MRI


Bone and joint disorders are a leading cause of physical disability worldwide and account for 50 % of all chronical diseases in people over 50 years of age. The goal of this subproject is to produce patient-specific models, in particular of musculoskeletal system.

With a focus on orthopedic surgeries, these models will allow for simulating pathological conditions and functional movement capabilities with the immediate intention of pre-operative planning and future potential use in diagnosis.
