The national center of competence in statistical shape modeling (NCSSM) is a network of Swiss University Institutes, which are doing active research on Statistical Shape Modeling or use Statistical Shape models as part of their research activities. The network has originally been established during the NCCR Co-Me. The NCSSM is a continuation of this network, and is formally established as part of the SiCAS foundation.
We belive that Statistical Shape Models have the potential to transform health-care applications to become both more patient-specific and more cost-effective. The NCSSM is committed to promote the use of statististical shape models. We strive to make the use of statistical models so easy, that all med-tech companies can benefit from this technology.
