This chapter shows applied technologies using computational anatomy (CA) models. CA systems based on clinical images assist physicians by providing useful information related to diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Such systems include computer-aided diagnosis and computer-assisted surgery systems. A thorough understanding of anatomy is essential when designing these systems. It is important to understand how anatomical information extracted by a computer is used. In this chapter, we introduce applications of CA in three categories: (a) computer-aided diagnosis, (b) computer-assisted therapy and intervention, and (c) computer-assisted autopsy imaging. The technical details of these applications are discussed.
