Computer-Aided Simulation for Bone Surgery
November/December 1993 (vol. 13 no. 6)
pp. 86-92

A system for evaluating bone deformities using a 3-D model directly recovered from 2-D images and for simulating surgery is described. It derives a 3-D object representation from only two X-ray images. It also offers user-friendly simulation of bone surgery with low-cost hardware and software. The system exhibits satisfactory behavior for reconstructing the bone shape, providing suitable data for the simulation and evaluation of bone surgery. Although the spline interpolation of the bone surface does not produce a realistic 3-D visualization of the tibia, which is used as an example, the reconstruction is useful in solving problems inherent in the pathology considered.
