Comprehensive Hand Modeling

2. Comprehensive Hand Modeling

The Reconstruction

Bones

Tendons

Source Data: CT scan
242 slices (0.8mm of separation) each of 512 by 512 samples regularly distributed on a total areal of 204mm by 204mm.
Source Data: MRI scan
67 slices (3mm of separation) each of 256 by 256 samples regularly distributed on a total area of 120mm by 120mm.
Each slice is contoured and the resulting contours are stacked together to determine the solid bone model. The tendons are obtained as isocontours at isovalue 42 resulting in a model of both skin and tendon.


The model must then be segmented so that each bone can be described as an independent structure. The tendons then need to be seperated from the skin.

Remaining Work

Complete extraction of tendon data from the tendon and hand model.
Combine tendon model with bone model for a complete geometric model.
