The global mammography market is expected to reach a value of USD 3.8 billion by 2025 The market growth can be attributed to the rising initiatives by various governments and NGOs to raise awareness about early diagnosis of microcalcifications in breast tissue. Some significant organizations such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation, CDC, and Breast Cancer Organization are promoting the early diagnosis of mammary gland calcification, which is one of the crucial factors expected to drive the demand over the forecast period. Based on a report published by the National Cancer Institute in 2015, it was stated that the proportion of women aged 45 to 65 years had increased to 81.1% in breast cancer screening. Major mammography manufacturers are introducing new products and increasing the number of approved products, which is further expected to impel the demand in the coming years. In January 2016, FDA approved a new manual for digital mammography quality control by the American College of Radiology. The growing number of awareness campaigns to promote womens' health services is also anticipated to propel growth. Some of the key industry players are Fujifilm; Hologic; Philips Healthcare; Siemens Healthineers; Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation; GE Healthcare; Metaltronica; PLANMED OY; Mindray Medical International Limited; and IMS srl.

The recent explosion of GPU (Graphical Processing Unit) power has not been fully utilised by many SMEs, possibly because GPU programming requires specialist skills different from those of conventional programming. GPSME will provide the SME participants with a simple route to accessing GPU power. Each of the SME participants is facing increasing competition in the market and GPSME will allow them to greatly improve their products in terms of speed and quality without major overheads. By involving close cooperation between the SMEs and RTD performers, GPSME will develop a toolkit to automate the conversion of existing sequential CPU code to an optimal GPU implementation. With such a toolkit, the SMEs will be able to convert their existing CPU code without committing significant effort and time. It will also support the execution of advanced techniques within acceptable runtimes and hence allow the SMEs to use more complex computing models in their new products. This will bring them major commercial benefits and significantly improve their market positions. Technically, GPSME features techniques to adapt automatic parallelization to the latest GPU compute architecture to deliver optimal performance. This is expected to greatly improve on traditional CPU-based automatic parallelization. The literature review has suggested that the techniques in this area are still very much in their infancy and that there is no existing toolkit that can benefit the SMEs immediately. The application areas of the SME participants are widely differing, so GPSME will produce a breakthrough that will open the door for great performance gains across many areas of application. This development will be particularly suitable for SMEs that focus applications on moderate platforms. In the long term, the outcomes of GPSME will benefit many companies and improve industrial competitiveness across the whole European Union.

The musculoskeletal apparatus is probably the organ system where the need for the integrative approach advocated by the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) initiative is most pronounced. The neuromotor control involves the entire body, whereas the processes involved in muscle twitching, bones and muscle adaptation, musculoskeletal aging, and in most musculoskeletal diseases take place at the molecular level. The traditional reductionist approach is reaching dead ends in a number of relevant questions in musculoskeletal research, such as those related to osteoporotic fractures, the pathophysiology of growth in cerebral palsy children, the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, etc. It is becoming more and more evident that the way out is the development of new Information and Communication Technology (ICT) that makes personalised, predictive, and integrative musculoskeletal medicine possible. Worldwide, the two largest research projects focused on this are the Osteoporotic Virtual Physiological Human (VPHOP) integrated project funded by the European Commission, and the Center for Physics-based Simulation of Biological Structures (SIMBIOS) funded by the USA National Institute of Health. Both projects are targeting the same strategic objective, but each project breaks it into research goals that are overlapping in a few cases and complementary in all the others. This unique condition creates an extremely interesting opportunity for international collaboration, which drastically increases the international impact of the work being done by the VPHOP project, and produces the conditions for global cooperation on this grand challenge of biomedical research. With the Neuro Musculo Skeletal Physiome (NMS Physiome) project, the SIMBIOS and VPHOP consortia intend to establish a more organic cooperation, structured around three objectives: integrate the project communities, integrate the projects tools, and work collaboratively on grand challenges.

Osteorthritis (OA) is a disabling disease, affecting the joints of 40% or more of the population over 60, resulting in a socioeconomic burden of 7b. per year in Germany alone. Joint surgery attempts to address the various disease stages, to either minimize the risk of early degeneration of the native joint, or to replace a fully degenerated joint, with well over 1,000,000 surgeries performed annually in the EU. Adequate joint function and longevity are the most important factors that define success, yet at least 10% of reconstructions fail within 10 years of surgery, and a large fraction of native joints progresses to early OA. The ensuing revision surgery is not only painful and stressful for the patient but also costly for the health care providers. Joint failure is a consequence of inadequate competence of the patients musculoskeletal system, joint overload and instability, or their combination. Currently, surgeons rely on 2D static radiographs and their experience to plan the procedure. To prevent failures and improve outcome, key facts on the mechanical conditions of the joint need to be available to the surgeon. By implementing refined image reconstruction, biomechanical modelling and analysis tools, MXL will make the dynamic joint loading and stability accessible for the planning of joint surgery in every case. Based on this technology, MXL safeguards the patient by supporting the surgeon to decide when to operate, which procedure to use, and which key aspects to address to reduce the failure rate and improve the functional outcome of joint surgery. Therefore, we will develop an ICT based planning environment that provides the surgeon with quantitative information on the patients anatomy, the competence of the soft and hard tissues, and integrates them within biomechanical models to arrive at an optimal strategy for joint surgery. This will result in a breakthrough with tremendous effects on patient safety and the return of function and joint longevity.

In recent years, various terms the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH), Integrative Biology, Physiome Research have been used to describe the trend in biomedical research towards the consideration of systemic processes. These phenomena are commonly observed in living organisms but cannot be explained within a single sub-system but reflect, rather, systemic outcomes that result from the interaction of multiple sub-systems.\nTraditionally, when confronted by the complexity exhibited in biomedical problems, researchers have been forced to focus purely on individual sub-systems; the most common boundary separating these has been spatiotemporal scale. The current interest in VPH is demanding greater concentration on the study and simulation of biological systems at multiple scales, and multiscale data collection and multiscale modelling have recently become synonymous with integrative research. The many VPH projects that will start to demand multiscale visualisation in the coming years suggests that this area should receive urgent attention.\nThe Multiscale Spatiotemporal Visualisation (MSV) project aims, by international cooperation between the European @neurIST and VPHOP integrated projects, the US National Alliance for Medical Imaging Computing (NA-MIC), and the New Zealand-based IUPS Physiome initiative: i) to define an interactive visualisation paradigm for biomedical multiscale data, ii) to validate it on the large collections produced by the VPH projects, and iii) to develop a concrete implementation as an open-source extension to the Visualisation Took Kit (VTK), ready to be incorporated by virtually any biomedical modelling software project.
