Anatomically accurate high fidelity computational model of human spine is developed from Computed Tomography scans of a healthy subject and validated against experimental and other computational results. Procedures developed in this work will serve useful in noninvasive evaluation of patients with back problems. The advantage of this approach is that the model can be tailored to specific individual or specimen.
