Medical models or bio-models represent portions of human anatomy at a scale of 1:1 obtained from three-dimensional (3D) medical imaging (CT scan, MRI). The procedure for the fabrication of medical models consists of multiple steps: 1) the acquisition of highquality volumetric 3D image data of the anatomical structure to be modelled, 2) 3D image processing to extract the region of interest from surrounding tissues, 3) mathematical surface modelling of the anatomic surfaces, 4) formatting of data… CONTINUE READING
