This Volume contains copies of most of the papers presented at the 7th International Conference on Modelling in Medicine and Biology (BIOMED/07) , which took place at the Wessex Institute of Technology Campus in the New Forest, UK.

The success of the conference is the result of focusing on the interaction and collaboration between mechanical scientists and engineers. The advances born of that cooperation have produced substantial progress in health care and in the quality of life of the population. Computer models in particular have been increasingly successful in simulating biological phenomena. Another important contribution due to the wide availability of computational facilities is the ability to process massive amounts of data.

All these topics are covered in this book, with the papers divided into the following sections: Cardiovascular systems; Biomechanics; Computational fluid dynamics; Intracranial pressure dynamics; Exposure to electromagnetic fields; Skin and membranes; Data acquisition and analysis; Computer simulation.
