The aim of this diploma thesis is to develop three-dimensional models of the vertebras of the euqine spine based on CT-scans. These 3D-models provide the basis for a biomechanical model of the equine back, in order to study the dynamical behaviour of the spine. The new proposed method will allow estimation and prediction of variables of interest (e.g.: load, stress, deformation, etc.) at any desired location in minute detail, and will be a valuable addition to clinical examination and diagnosis of equine back problems. Based on CT-scans the contours of each scan are being traced in a 2D-CAD program named ME10, copied in the 3D modelling program named CATIA and formed to an anatomically correct vertebra.
