The prediction of heterogeneous material properties in biomedical applications is becoming a major problem in cases with complex microstructures and multiphase materials. Several branches in medicine require accurate measurements, which can be achieved by means of medical imaging. They are non-destructive techniques to visualize the inside features of solid objects and for obtaining digital information on their three-dimensional geometries and properties. Therefore, for relating the observed measurements to unknown physical parameters, through medical imaging reconstruction, inverse modelling approaches are advisable.
