Presenter: Jérôme Schmid (ESR, University of Geneva, MIRALab)
This technical training introduces ITK and VTK in a first part through examples and exercises. The second part illustrates the connection of ITK and VTK pipelines. Simple segmentation scenarios are used to introduce the various examples.
An environment to program C++ is essential as well as an installation of CMake. This makes the tutorial theoretically compatible with any OS platform. Check out first the Helloworld folder, then follow the instructions in the training presentation.
This technical training was held in the experimental room of the Laboratorio di Tecnologia Medica of the Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli. A brief description of the experimental procedure was explained to the attendants. Then they were allowed to perform an experimental session on soft tissue (tendons) to determine their mechanical behaviour.
Finite Elements Method Technical Training
Presenters: Anders Sandholm (ESR, Ecôle Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)) and Nicolas Pronost (ER, EPFL)
This technical training introduces the use of Finite Elements Method (FEM) to carry out muscles deformation simulation. The technical training uses a convenient system of Linux live CD to be able to run on any x86 platform. The user is responsible to download the correct live CD distribution (read instructions). The FEM simulation is performed with the Salome platform and the numerical solver Code Aster. The models of the simulation are composed of muscles and bones provided by MIRALab, University of Geneva and the forces to drive the simulation are pre-computed from an EPFL simulation engine.
This presentation depicts recent advances in parallel MRI exploiting the information simultaneously produced by multiple receivers. Technical aspects are given as well as the current issues of this promising technology.

Medical Image Segmentation
Presenters: Dr. Hervé Delingette (INRIA), Dr. Tobias Heimann (ER, INRIA)
This presentation gives first an overview of medical image segmentation with its challenges and rich variety of approaches. Then methods based on appearance and shape priors are discussed more in details in a second part.
This technical training focuses on dynamic simulation of anatomical structures by using the Open Source software SOFA. A step-by-step tutorial is given that explores first a simple knee joint simulation model and then a rigid/non-rigid models interaction simulation.

Presenters: Michael Voigt, Mark de Zee
This technical training presented the use of multiple modalities (Motion capture, force plate, EMG) to perform gait analysis in the motion lab. A first presentation was given covering the topics of multi-modal acquisition for musculoskeletal analysis and simulation. Then a practical session was held in the motion lab in order to present to the participants the different acquisitions devices and related software.
