A6: Statistical Shape Modelling and its Applications in CAOS
Statistical shape analysis enjoys a remarkable popularity within the medical image analysis community, and has been widely used to study human anatomy. These techniques hold potential for novel approaches in image guided surgery planning, simulation and execution. Among possible applications, the need for pre- and/or intraoperative CT data sets to gather bone surface information may be removed, pathologies could be detected automatically or structural biomechanical behaviour of human structures incorporated during planning.
The aim of the workshop is to introduce and present statistical shape modelling to researchers working in Orthopaedics and related topics. The workshop introduces a varied list of international renowned speakers working actively on the topic of statistical shape and intensity modelling. The workshop aims at emphasizing not only on the methodologies but also on the practical aspects of statistical shape modelling.
