One of the main challenges for computer-assisted surgery (CAS) is to determine the intra-operative morphology and motion of soft-tissues. This information is prerequisite to the registration of multi-modal patient-specific data for enhancing the surgeon's navigation capabilities by observing beyond exposed tissue surfaces and for providing intelligent(More)
In this paper we consider representation issues of rigid body transformations based on geometric properties of reflected correspondence vectors. A sufficient and necessary representation of rigid body transformations is put forward followed by an accurate and robust algorithm for the registration of free-form surfaces. The algorithm makes full use of global(More)
This paper presents robust methods for determining the order of a sequence of stripes captured in an uncoded structured light scanning system, i.e. where all the stripes are projected with uniform colour, width and spacing. A single bitmap image shows a pattern of vertical stripes from a projected source, which are deformed by the surface of the target(More)
Structured light is a well-known technique for capturing 3D surface measurements but has yet to achieve satisfactory results for applications demanding high resolution models at frame rate. For these requirements a dense set of uniform uncoded white stripes seems attractive. But the problem of relating projected and recorded stripes, here called the(More)
