Computational simulation technology has become an indispensable tool for researchers across the biomechanics discipline. Crucial to the effectiveness of such a tool is its ability to efficiently simulate patient-specific problems. This paper will present a unique and exceptionally efficient approach that converts 3D digital images (provided typically by CT, ultrasound or MRI scanners) directly into highly accurate computational models. Two case studies will be presented, including the virtual positioning of a hip implant within a scan, and the insertion of a cannula into a human artery. Both studies investigate the effect of certain surgical procedures by using image-based models.
