Robust Scattered Data Points Approximation Using Finite Element Biomechanical Model
Many enabling technologies like non-rigid registration in medical image computing rely on the construction of a function by interpolating scattered points; however, the outliers contained in the data and the approximation error make the robust and accurate [...]

Coupling Finite Element and Mesh-free Methods for Modelling Brain Deformation in Response to Tumour Growth
Very little is known about the deformation effects of tumour growth within the brain. Computer simulations have the potential to calculate such deformations. A method for computing localised high deformations within the brain's soft tissue is presented. [...]

Orientation definition of anisotropy is important to finite element simulation of bone material properties
The assignment of bone material properties to finite element model is a fundamental step in finite element analysis and has great influence on analysis results. Most work done in this area has adopted isotropic assignment strategy as its simplicity. However, [...]

Assessment of Peri-Articular Implant Fitting Based on Statistical Finite Element Modeling
We present a framework for statistical finite element analysis allowing performing statistical statements of biomechanical performance of peri-articular implants across a given population. In this paper, we focus on the design of orthopaedic implants that fit [...]

Predicting implant stability: in vitro validation in artificial bone
Primary stability of osseointegrated implants is necessary for short and long-term success of the treatment. This paper presents a method to help clinicians preoperatively assess this primary implant stability. The method combines a planning software with a [...]

Inverse Nonlinear Finite Element Methods for Surgery Simulation and Image Guidance
Nonlinear finite element methods are described in which cyclic organ motion is implied from 4D scan data. The equations of motion corresponding to an explicit integration of the total Lagrangian formulation are reversed, such that the sequence of node forces [...]

A Mix-resolution Bone-related Statistical Deformable Model (mBr-SDM) for Soft Tissue Prediction in Orthognathic Surgery Planning
In this paper, we propose a Mix-resolution Bone-related Statistical Deformable Model (mBr-SDM) to improve the predicting accuracy of orthognathic surgery, particularly for the main deformation region. Mix-resolution Br-SDM consists of two separate Br-SDM of [...]

An ITK Implementation of Physics-based Non-rigid Registration Method
As part of the ITK v4 project efforts, we have developed ITK filters for physics-based non-rigid registration (PBNRR), which satisfies the following requirements: account for tissue properties in the registration, improve accuracy compared to rigid [...]

Integration of Geometrical Boundary Conditions on Soft Tissue Characterization under large deformation
Soft tissue characterization with finite element (FE) modeling is important to develop a realistic model for medical simulation, since it is possible to display complex tool-tissue interactions during medical interventions. However, it is difficult to [...]
