26 April 2018 Creation of anatomical models from CT data
Author Affiliations +
Computed tomography is a great source of biomedical data because it allows a detailed exploration of complex anatomical structures. Some structures are not visible on CT scans, and some are hard to distinguish due to partial volume effect. CT datasets require preprocessing before using them as anatomical models in a simulation system. The work describes segmentation and data transformation methods for an anatomical model creation from the CT data. The result models may be used for visual and haptic rendering and drilling simulation in a virtual surgery system.
