NEW JOURNAL on ‘Imaging and Visualization’ FOR 2013
We are pleased to announce the launch of a New Journal on ‘Imaging and Visualization’ which is an extension of the successful ‘Journal of Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering’ which is published by
Taylor and Francis.
Full details can be found at
If you wish to receive further details or wish to submit high quality
research on ‘Imaging and Visualization’ to the journal please contact the
Journal Editor-in- Chief, Prof. Joao Tavares at the University of Porto,
Proceedings CMBBE2012 now available online:
The Proceedings of the 10th International Symposium on Computer Methods in
Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering.
Hotel Berlin, Berlin, Germany, April 7th – 11th, 2012. Published by ARUP;
ISBN: 978-0-9562121-5-3; Copyright© 2012 Arup. All rights reserved.
Available in www.cmbbe2012.cf.ac.uk
These proceedings, which are in e-Book format, contain over 220 papers and
record the presentations given at the symposium. They provide an excellent
update of the latest advances, novel applications and new techniques being
addressed in computational biomechanics and related biosciences. They give
the latest review of advances taking place in this area as well as providing
quantifiable data and information as well as many references and
applications in biomechanics and biomedical engineering. The contents will
be of direct interest to those applying, extending and developing new
techniques in this area together with its wider application in biosciences,
cellular mechanics and clinical applications. The proceedings can be
downloaded from the main page of www.cmbbe2012.cf.ac.uk

New textbook on Facial Imaging:
Three-Dimensional Imaging for Orthodontics and Maxillofacial Surgery. Edited
by Chung How Kau (University of Alabama School of Dentistry, USA) and
Stephen Richmond (Cardiff University School of Dentistry, UK). Published by
Wiley-Blackwell 2010. ISBN: 978-1-4051-6240.
This book addresses a gap in the applications of 3-D imaging in dentistry
and allied healthcare areas. To topics covered below are presented by
world-renowned experts within the field and will of interest to the novice
through to experienced practitioners within the healthcare sector.
Part 1: Imaging, Diagnostics and Assessment Methods.
Part 2: Applications, Physiological Development and Surgical Procedures.
Part 3: Movement and Facial Dynamics.
The book is available from the following links:
Multimodal imaging takes information collected from different imaging modalities that may not share the same piece of equipment, and presents them in a cohesive way via image processing techniques. Innovative ways to visualize, analyze, and characterise biological tissues and synthetic materials using multimodal medical imaging devices are emerging. This is a rapidly evolving field due to the constant upgrading and improvement of medical imaging and computational systems.
The ability to achieve millimeter or even sub-millimeter spatial resolution with the latest x-ray computer tomographs (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners has propelled non-invasive imaging into a new generation of advanced applications. Nuclear Medicine imaging, particularly positron emission tomography (PET), has dramatically progressed as well. Combining these imagining modalities with micron resolution optical scanning yields a step change in performance and treatment options.
Creating software models of the human anatomy and imaging systems, and modeling
the medical physics of the imaging acquisition process can provide a means
to generate realistic synthetic data sets. In many cases synthetic data sets
can be used, reducing the time and cost of collecting real images, and
making data sets available to institutions without clinical imaging systems.
These data are now being used for digital treatment
planning and rapid manufacture of custom made medical devices, providing
patient centred care and personalised health solutions. This in turn reduces
operative time, patient trauma, and post-operative recovery time and
associated cost, with improved outcome.
