Computer system for definition of the quantitative geometry of musculature from CT images

Comput Methods Biomech Biomed Engin. 2005 Feb;8(1):25-9. doi: 10.1080/10255840512331388083.


The computer system for quantitative determination of musculoskeletal geometry from computer tomography (CT) images has been developed. The computer system processes series of CT images to obtain three-dimensional (3D) model of bony structures where the effective muscle fibres can be interactively defined. Presented computer system has flexible modular structure and is suitable also for educational purposes.
