Parametric-based Reconstruction Of 3D Mesh Models; Towards the Generation of a Parametric Human Foot Biomodel
Parametric-based Reconstruction Of 3D Mesh Models; Towards the Generation of a Parametric Human Foot Biomodel (The Eurographics Association, 2015)In this work a new reconstruction technique is presented based on Parametric-Based Deformation. The new method uses a template 3D mesh model which is deformed according to user-defined semantic parameters in order to derive ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2015)The aim of the SWIFT project is to determine which visualisations of blood glucose-related data on mobile devices are most usable by people with insulin-dependent diabetes, to improve self-management.
(The Eurographics Association, 2015)The main focus of the preliminary work presented here is the automatic real-time annotation (detection and tracking) of the important structures seen in an ultrasound image taken from a femoral nerve block, i.e. the femoral ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2015)The use of electric wheelchairs is inherently risky, as collisions due to lack of control can result in injury for the user, but also potentially for other pedestrians. Introducing new users to powered chairs via virtual ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2015)We propose a simulation framework to simulate the computed tomography acquisition process. It includes five components: anatomic data, respiration modelling, automatic parametrisation, X-ray simulation, and tomography ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2015)We use the Fly algorithm, an artificial evolution strategy, to reconstruct positron emission tomography (PET) images. The algorithm iteratively optimises the position of 3D points. It eventually produces a point cloud, ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2015)Neuro resection surgery is one of the last resorts when treating epilepsy patients where conservative treatment shows no effect on seizure reduction. However, due to the severity of the surgery, the resection planning has ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2015)This work presents a new method for 3D surface detection using a statistical dual-region filter. The method improves over traditional 3D surface detection techniques by resolving interfaces between different stochastic ...

Simulation-based Ultrasound Training Supported by Annotations, Haptics and Linked Multimodal Views (The Eurographics Association, 2015)When learning ultrasound (US) imaging, trainees must learn how to recognize structures, interpret textures and shapes, and simultaneously register the 2D ultrasound images to their 3D anatomical mental models. Alleviating ...
Exploration of 3D Medical Image Data for Interventional Radiology using Myoelectric Gesture Control (The Eurographics Association, 2015)Human-computer interaction with medical images in a sterile environment is a challenging task. It is often delegated to an assistant or performed directly by the physician with an interaction device wrapped in a sterile ...
