Overview

Forecast advances in medical and biological technology will transform medical care and treatment. This is due in great part to interaction and collaboration between medical sciences and engineering. These advances will result in substantial progress in health care and in the quality of life of the population. Computer models in particular have been increasingly successful in simulating biological phenomena. These are lending support to many applications, including cardiovascular systems, the study of orthopaedics and biomechanics, and electrical simulation, amongst others. Another important contribution, due to the wide availability of computational facilities and the development of better numerical algorithms, is the ability to acquire, analyse, manage and visualise massive amounts of data. This book includes the topics from the Eighth International Conference on Modelling in Medicine and Biology: Cardiovascular System; Computational Fluid Dynamics in Biomedicine; Biomechanics; Model of Physiological Processes; Data Acquisition and Analysis; Virtual Reality in Medicine.
