Abstract: This paper presents a framework for generating patient-specific, visually realistic anatomical models from medical scan images suitable for usage in a virtual environment. The goal is to design a robust and repeatable procedure for rapid preparation of anatomical models with minimal user intervention. The proposed framework is an integration of algorithmic componentssuch as image processing and segmentation, 3D surface reconstruction, mesh decimation, remeshing and visualization. Based on this framework, we have successfully generated the anatomical models of the human liver and the gall bladder from real clinical CT scan data. Our proposed framework took less than 20 minutes for a typical CT scan of 70 slices, demonstrating that it is efficient for real clinical applications which demand rapid turnaround time, such as for pre-surgical virtual training. © 2011 CAD Solutions, LLC.
