The central objective of the SimBio project is the improvement of clinical and medical
practices by the use of numerical simulation for bio-medical problems. The project builds
on significant expertise and prior developments for specific applications to construct a
generic environment, running on parallel and distributed computing systems.
The software environment is capable of
handling a range of important problems relevant to the target community of clinical and
medical service providers.
This innovative development is an enabling technology for
advanced clinical practice & health care leading to improvements in:
non-invasive prognosis and diagnosis,
pre-operative planning, design and implantation of prostheses and
postoperative verification and evaluation of treatment success.
evaluations in the project will demonstrate the effectiveness of the SimBio environment and
thus accelerate the take-up of this IT technology within the medical area.
