ABSTRACT
<p>To avoid lung disease, regular preemptive screenings are an absolute necessity. This article describes a technique that creates a 3D reconstruction of the ribcage without expensive scanners.</p>
INDEX TERMS
3D modeling, chest radiographs, computer-aided diagnosis (CAD), geometric reconstruction, rib segmentation.
