Dear All,

At present I am involved with a project to generate a 3D computer
model of the spine to use it to investigate:
1. the effects of surgical intervention of the function of the
spine, for example as a result of disc fusion.
2. to simulate the movement of the spine during surgical operations

The reason I am writing is to ask if anyone knows of a suitable
computer package that I could use to to simulate the movement and
interaction of the vertebrae and discs (and eventually muscles and
ligaments). The solid model data will be obtained from CT scans.

Also I looking for any papers, or authors of papers, that have been
written on this subject.

Your help is appreciated.

Yours sincerely

Sam Julian
