21 February 1980 Volume Estimation: A New, Accurate, Computerized Algorithm
Author Affiliations +
The volume of a polyhedron, which approximates an anatomical feature or lesion is calculated by means of an algorithm which is evoked by the Gauss' Theorem. Such polyhedra are useful in reconstructing surfaces of anatomical features and lesions from data obtained from CT or ultrasound scans. The volume estimation algorithm is presented. A proof of the algorithm is provided together with applications.
