MML: pre-processing unit for the creation of patient-specific musculo-skeletal models

The MML pre-processing unit is a software application, which allows the creation of patient-specific musculo-skeletal model.

The software allows importing the CT scan of the patient (in DICOM format) and from that to obtain the surfaces of bones, muscles, and skin, the origin and insertion points of all muscles together with the main muscle action line.

The musculo-skeletal model is obtained registering to the patient¿s CT dataset a complete musculo-skeletal atlas using both a virtual palpation procedure and an advanced operation for the adapting of surfaces to the desired shape.
