Statistical Shape Models - Understanding and Mastering Variation in Anatomy

In our chapter we are describing how to reconstruct three-dimensional anatomy from medical image data and how to build Statistical 3D Shape Models out of many such reconstructions yielding a new kind of anatomy that not only allows quantitative …

Statistical Shape Modeling of Musculoskeletal Structures and Its Applications

Statistical shape models (SSM) describe the shape variability contained in a given population. They are able to describe large populations of complex shapes with few degrees of freedom. This makes them a useful tool for a variety of tasks that arise …

Image Processing

CT is applied in a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications: infarction, tumors, calcifications, haemorrhage and complex bone trauma, especially around joints, acute and chronic changes in the lung or liver parenchyma, pulmonary embolism, …

Landmark Based Statistical Shape Analysis

The advent of three-dimensional (3D) imaging and stereophotogrammetry has opened up new and exciting possibilities for modern anthropometry. Based on digitally recorded, high resolution data samples, not only conventional morphometric measures can be …

Bildsegmentierung

Für eine Vielzahl von Fragestellungen der computergestützten Chirurgie ist die explizite Kenntnis über die räumliche Lage und Ausdehnung anatomischer Strukturen unerlässlich. Bei der Resektion eines Tumors aus der Leber z.B. ist es wichtig zu wissen, …

Subject Specific Ligament Models Toward Real Time Simulation of the Knee Joint

We present an efficient finite element method to simulate a transversely isotropic nonlinear material for ligaments. The approach relies on tetrahedral elements and exploits the geometry to optimize computation of the derivatives of the strain …
