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, Portugal :

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 

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

Multi- Modal Medical Imaging & Custom Made Medical Devices

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.
