We describe a method for automatically building statistical shape models from a training set of example boundaries/surfaces. These models show considerable promise as a basis for segmenting and interpreting images. One of the drawbacks of the approach is, however, the need to establish a set of dense correspondences between all members of a set of training(More)

We describe an automatic method for building optimal 3D statistical shape models from sets of training shapes. Although shape models show considerable promise as a basis for segmenting and interpreting images, a major drawback of the approach is the need to establish a dense correspondence across a training set of example shapes. It is important to(More)
The correspondence problem is of high relevance in the construction and use of statistical models. Statistical models are used for a variety of medical application, e.g. segmentation, registration and shape analysis. In this paper, we present comparative studies in three anatomical structures of four different correspondence establishing methods. The goal(More)
We extend recent work on building 3D statistical shape models, automatically, from sets of training shapes and describe an application in shape analysis. Using an existing measure of model quality, based on a minimum description length criterion, and an existing method of surface re-parameterisation, we introduce a new approach to model optimisation that is(More)
Statistical shape models are powerful tools for image interpretation and shape analysis. A simple, yet effective, way of building such models is to capture the statistics of sampled point coordinates over a training set of example shapes. However, a major drawback of this approach is the need to establish a correspondence across the training set. In 2-D, a(More)
Statistical shape models have been used widely as a basis for segmenting and interpreting images. A major drawback of the approach is the need to establish a set of dense correspondences across a training set of segmented shapes. By posing the problem as one of minimising the description length of the model, we develop an efficient method that automatically(More)
MTDATA allows equilibria to be calculated for multicomponent systems of practical interest, containing many different types of phase, from critically assessed data for their component binary and ternary subsystems. Very complicated calculations can be undertaken with as many as thirty different components and 500 phases being considered simultaneously. A(More)
