- Publisher's Summary
- This book contains the proceedings of the tenth in a series of biennial conferences on the topic of advances in medical and biological computation that began in 2001. The advances covered in the computer modelling, and computational methods and measurements, and their integration, have applications in the study of orthopaedics, cardiovascular systems biomechanics and electrical simulation, amongst others, and are leading to progress in medical care and treatment. The conference topics cover a broad spectrum including the simulation of biomedical problems, ranging from cardiovascular modelling to virtual reality and simulation in surgery.
