Abstract: Medical Image Based Computing is a research area at the interface between mathematics, engineering and medicine. It is dealing with the modeling and simulation of physiological phenomena in the human body, where particular emphasis is put on models, which depend on patient-specific data. The goal is to provide simulations and optimizations that allow for individual planning and prediction of treatments for diseases. I will speak about the mathematical modeling of biophysical processes and about the challenges that are imposed by the desire to develop models that can be used in the clinical practice.
