Image-based model generation methods demonstrate the value of creating realistic human head models based on high-resolution MRI data. Head models created by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and Simpleware (Exeter, UK) are being used to study head impact and traumatic brain injury; this offers a solution to the problem of limited experimental testing. Results from the modelling methodology and simulation demonstrate a good level of accuracy when compared to experimental benchmarks. The methodology and models have been extended for use in areas such as examining head impact in sports including American football, rugby and cricket.
