The ENCyclopedia Of DNA Elements (ENCODE) Project aims to identify all functional elements in the human genome sequence. The pilot phase of the Project is focused on a specified 30 megabases (È1%) of the human genome sequence and is organized as an international consortium of computational and laboratory-based scientists working to develop and apply(More)
This paper describes a prototype system for surgical planning and prediction of human facial shape after craniofacial and maxillofacial surgery for patients with facial deformities. For this purpose it combines, unifies, and extends various methods from geometric modeling, finite element analysis, and image processing to render highly realistic 3D images of(More)
This paper describes a new method for visualization and analysis of multivariate laser range data using complex–valued non–orthogonal Gabor wavelets, principal component analysis and a topological mapping network. The initial data set that provides both shape and texture information is encoded in terms of both amplitude and phase of a complex valued 2D(More)
The accurate prediction of the post-surgical facial shape is of paramount importance for surgical planning in facial surgery. In this paper we present a framework for facial surgery simulation which is based on volumetric finite element modeling. We contrast conventional procedures for surgical planning against our system by accompanying a patient during(More)
In the following paper we describe a new generic method to find an approximate solution for the volume rendering equation using hierarchical, orthonormal wavelet basis functions. The approach is based on the idea that an initial volume data set can be decomposed into a pyramidal representation by means of a 3D wavelet transform. Once the wavelet function is(More)
This paper presents a segmentation pipeline for computer–based automatic analysis of multi–modal tomographic images. It is a computer based support for the localization of pathological tissues such as brain tumors. The segmentation pipeline of the presented approach includes texture analysis, classification with a modified Kohonen Feature Map, a collection(More)
