Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9959106A1] A system for relating images and generating a 3D model of anatomy is described. This can be accomplished using three modules. A sculptor module (115) is used to spatially relate images of a patient. The images are generated using a number of different techniques, such as optical and x-ray. The sculptor allows a user to identify the location of different anatomical points in each of the images. Thus, a sculptor allows a user to relate different anatomical points to each other in a 3D space and also relate the points to the images. The clinician module (125) uses the related points to modify or customize a stock model (e.g., a standard anatomical 3D model). The customized model that is created corresponds to a 3D model of the patient's anatomy.
