Title of their talk
Digital Twins for Computer Haptic-Assisted 
	Orthopaedic Surgery

In medical imaging, digitalization has become the key aspect for future development. The realization of 3D organ models based on MRI, CT and ultrasound imaging is a growing research field. With the increasing amount of data from such medical examinations, and the improvement of the quality of the data, this creates unique possibilities to build realistic organ models. These models have the potential to very closely imitate both the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Therefore, such models could be used in the teaching of these disciplines, and not least in the planning and training of surgical interventions. In this project the goal is to establish digital twins of human joints, focusing on the knee and shoulder. The digitalization of medical imaging, and the digital acquisition of relevant medical data from many sources have opened up for the development of innovative and efficient tools constituting a new playground for surgeons and physicians. The access to real human physiological variables, combined with the increasingly advanced tools for designing and visualizing in 3D, opens the possibility of generating realistic digital 4D models of human joints. These 4D models will be designed as digital twins of its biological counterparts, including the functional positions, operational positions and dynamic variation of the 3D models. These models will be used in intelligent investigations of the joints, and in surgical interventions on the joints.
