ÐA framework for automatic landmark indentification is presented based on an algorithm for corresponding the boundaries of two shapes. The auto-landmarking framework employs a binary tree of corresponded pairs of shapes to generate landmarks automatically on each of a set of example shapes. The landmarks are used to train statistical shape models known as(More)
A previous publication has described a method of pairwise 3D surface correspondence for the automated generation of landmarks on a set of examples from a class of shape [3]. In this paper we describe a set of improved algorithms which give more accurate and more robust results. We show how the pairwise corresponder can be used in a extension of an existing(More)
A method for corresponding the boundaries of two shapes is presented. The algorithm locates a matching pair of sparse polygonal approximations, one for each of a pair of boundaries, by minimising a cost function using a greedy algorithm. The cost function expresses the dissimilarity in both the shape and representation error (with respect to the deening(More)
A method for corresponding the triangulated mesh surface representations of two shapes is presented. The algorithm produces a matching pair of sparse polyhedral approximations, one for each shape surface, using a global Eu-clidean measure of similarity. A method of surface patch parameterisation is presented and its use in the interpolation of surfaces for(More)
Bone mineral density (BMD) estimates for the proximal femur using Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) are currently considered the standard for making a diagnosis of osteoporosis in an individual patient using BMD alone. We have compared BMD results from a commercial Quantitative CT (QCT) BMD analysis system, "CTXA Hip", which provides clinical data for(More)
