Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0063844A1] For in a medical environment interactively constructing relational geometric objects that are each defined in an object category within a finite set of categories, each object gets assigned a number of parameters that collectively fix the object in question. In particular, each object gets assigned one or more directional linkings to other such objects in a predefined linking structure. Furthermore, various such objects are geometrically associated with image positions in a medical image that has a first dimension and a second dimension, whilst adjusting parameter values of various such objects to their associated image positions, and updating parameters of other objects linked therewith according to the structure, for after terminating the updating accommodating geometrical information with respect to the medical image.
