Paper Abstract

The modelling of the shoulder joint is an important step to set a Computer-Aided Surgery System for shoulder prosthesis placement. Our approach mainly concerns the bones structures of the scapulo-humeral joint. Our goal is to develop a tool that allows the surgeon to extract morphological data from medical images in order to interpret the biomechanical behaviour of a prosthesised shoulder for preoperative and peroperative virtual surgery. To provide a light and easy-handling representation of the shoulder, a geometrical model composed of quadrics, planes and other simple forms is proposed.
