In clinical routine, lower limb analysis relies on conventional X-ray (2D view) or computerised tomography (CT) Scan (lying position). However, these methods do not allow 3D analysis in standing position. The aim of this study is to propose a fast and accurate 3D-reconstruction-method based on parametric models and statistical inferences from biplanar(More)
Respiratory motion in emission tomography leads to reduced image quality. Developed correction methodology has been concentrating on the use of respiratory synchronized acquisitions leading to gated frames. Such frames, however, are of low signal-to-noise ratio as a result of containing reduced statistics. In this work, we describe the implementation of an(More)
Respiratory motion is a source of artefacts and reduced image quality in PET. Proposed methodology for correction of respiratory effects involves the use of gated frames, which are however of low signal-to-noise ratio. Therefore a method accounting for respiratory motion effects without affecting the statistical quality of the reconstructed images is(More)
Planar radiographs still are the gold standard for the measurement of the skeletal weight-bearing shape and posture. In this paper, we propose to use an as-rigid-as-possible deformation approach based on moving least squares to obtain 3D personalized bone models from planar x-ray images. Our prototype implementation is capable of performing interactive rate(More)
This paper addresses the problem of the robust registration of multiple observations of the same object. Such a problem typically arises whenever it becomes necessary to recover the trajectory of an evolving object observed through standard 3-D medical imaging techniques. The instances of the tracked object are assumed to be variously truncated, locally(More)
While focusing at accurate 3D joint kinematics, this paper explores the problem of how to perform a robust rigid registration for a sequence of object surfaces observed using standard 3D medical imaging techniques. Each object instance is assumed to give access to a polyhedral encoding of its boundary. We consider the case where object instances are noised(More)
3D reconstructions of the spine from a frontal and sagittal radiographs is extremely challenging. The overlying features of soft tissues and air cavities interfere with image processing. It is also difficult to obtain information that is accurate enough to reconstruct complete 3D models. To overcome these problems, the proposed method efficiently combines(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this paper is to describe a semi-automated segmentation method for the liver and evaluate its performance on CT-scan and MR images. METHODS First, an approximate 3D model of the liver is initialized from a few usergenerated contours to globally outline the liver shape. The model is then automatically deformed by a Laplacian mesh(More)
