<p>An approach to the problem of comparative analysis of objects and their surfaces that arises in medical imaging is presented and illustrated with an application to postsurgical bone-graft separation. A common requirement in medical imaging applications is the registration of multiple representations of the object prior to mensuration. The modeling of the registration process and the registration system are described. The measurement of change in volume of bone grafts implanted inside the human body in a corrective surgical procedure is discussed, and the results are evaluated.</p>
