Abstract:

The applications for three-dimensional (3D) scanners in breast reconstruction surgery, which is a multi-step process lasting at times 2-3 years are increasing. In order to quantify changes occurring in the reconstructed breasts over time, it is necessary to register images acquired from patients during multiple clinical visits. In this study we present a semi-automated approach that allows registration of 3D images such that the differences in image-coordinate systems are removed, while optimizing correspondence of the breasts. Achieving this initial correspondence is essential to quantify differences between the two surfaces and to record the local morphological changes in the breast.

Keywords:

3D image, torso matching, 3D rigid registration, breast reconstruction, and breast morphology
