Modeling and Registration of Medical Data

  • Eduardo Bayro-CorrochanoEmail author


In medical image analysis, the availability of 3D models is of great interest to physicians because it allows them to have a better understanding of the situation, and such models are relatively easy to build. However, sometimes and in special situations (such as surgical procedures), some structures (such as the brain or tumors) suffer a (nonrigid) transformation and the initial model must be corrected to reflect the actual shape of the object.
