This week, the speaker for the IMG Seminar is Dr. Jennifer A. Nichols on Predictive Biomechanical Simulations: Applications to the Musculoskeletal System:

Predictive biomechanical simulations utilize computer models to replicate how the musculoskeletal system responds to pathologies and treatments. This talk discusses current advancement in predictive simulations with studies of the wrist/hand and foot/ankle as primary examples. Current challenges preventing the widespread use of predictive simulations for clinical diagnostics and prognostics as well as approaches for overcoming these challenges will also be discussed.
