Mathematical modelling and computer simulation have had a profound impact on science and proved tremendously successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is to extend the success of computational mechanics beyond traditional engineering, in particular to medicine and biomedical sciences. The Computational Biomechanics for Medicine workshops provide an opportunity for researchers to present and exchange ideas on applying their techniques to computer-integrated medicine, which includes MICCAI topics of Medical Image Computing, Computer-Aided Modeling and Evaluation of Surgical Procedures, and Imaging, Analysis Methods for Image Guided Therapies, Computational Physiology, and Medical Robotics. For example, continuum mechanics models provide a rational basis for analysing medical images by constraining the solution to biologically plausible motions and processes. Biomechanical modelling can also provide clinically important information about the physical status of the underlying biology, integrating information across molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales.

The main goal of this workshop is to showcase the clinical and scientific utility of computational biomechanics in computer-integrated medicine.

Keynote Speaker

Associate Professor Michael Girard

Duke-NUS Medical School, and Singapore Eye Research Institute

Keynote Title: Optic Nerve Head Structure and Biomechanics in Glaucoma

ABSTRACT Glaucoma is a major blinding disorder for which mechanisms are far from being understood. Glaucoma is characterised by cell loss within the optic nerve head (ONH) at the back of the eye. Recent work now strongly suggests that cellular death could be the result of a biomechanically deficient ONH. In this talk, Dr Girard will discuss and describe AI & biomechanical tools to assess the structural & biomechanical phenotype of the ONH. Dr Girard will also explain the importance of collecting longitudinal data in glaucoma patients, as this could be the key to predict visual field loss progression from glaucoma.
