objectives for A:
Automatic Segmentation of contour of MR/CT Images.
Editing of contour using a simple editor ( under developement ).
Generation of 3D models with the contours.
We are now able to automatically segment the MRI to extract the individual
bone elements. From here we have generated the 3D model using the
marching cube algorithm. The quality of the segmentation is generally
good accept for certain scans. We will tried to identified these exceptional
cases and their causes. But for the moment a general retouching tools
is under development.
objectives for B:
Definition of file formats for simulator
Importing of 3D models in the form of DXF
Visualisation of 3D models using OpenGL
Construction of a Visualisation Software allowing the user to "navigate"
around the 3D model.
Simulate the dynamics of the Wrist
We have created an intermediate file format call .col for 3D objects.
The specification is still evolving.
We have successfully extracted 3D objects from DXF files, converting
them to .col format for rendering and visualisation.
