The goal of Computational Anatomy is to define methods for the quantization of shape within biological structures. Through the use of modern supercomputing, significant discoveries have been accomplished in this field. As methods become refined, medical applications will emerge in the field to improve medical imaging diagnoses. We review our efforts in the Bioinformatics of Computational Functional Anatomy where we compute functional and physiological response variables in anatomical coordinates. Collaborative efforts in brain and heart imaging in NIH funded initiatives such as the Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN) Morphometry project and the CaridoVascular Research Network (CVRG) respectively are discussed.
