The main objective of this project is to produce an accurate parametric model of a human cervical vertebra and the intervertebral disc. This model is based on a well defined set of parameters that reflect the differences between the different vertebrae, allowing for the reconstruction of cervical segments of the spine by a simple control of these parameters.
