16th CMBBE 2019 in New York, SB is co-sponsor of the conference

The 16th International Symposium on Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering
and 4th Conference on Imaging and Visualization will be held from Aug 14 - 16, 2019 at Columbia University, New York

Deadline for abstract submission is 15 February 2019.

Société de Biomécanique will organize the "Joint imaging and musculosketal modelling" session.

Chair : Raphaël Dumas, Université de Lyon – IFSTTAR, France

Subject-specific data are used more and more frequently in musculoskeletal models to increase their bio-fidelity and their relevance for clinical applications. Muscle and bone geometries are derived from medical imaging, but joint range of motion, degrees of freedom, alignment, and contact locations mostly remain generic. This session will focus on joint imaging (e.g. CT-scan, MRI, EOS, and fluoroscopy) and its use for developing and/or validating subject-specific musculoskeletal models.

Speakers :
•    Wafa Skalli, École Nationale Supérieure d'Arts et Métiers, ParisTEch, (ENSAM), Institut de Biomécanique Humaine Georges Charpak, Paris ("invited talk", 25 min).  "Imaging data fusion and subject specific spine modelling".
•    Ehsan Sarshari, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lauzanne (EPFL), Laboratory of Biomechanical orthopedics, Switzerland. "CT-scan based patient-specific shoulder musculo-skelettal model"
•    Raphaël Dumas, Université de Lyon 1, IFSTTAR, Laboratoire de Biomécanique et Mécanique des Chocs, (LBMC), Lyon. "Personnalised musculo-skelettal model of knee OA patients"
