Many scientific and technical endeavors require the reconstruction of a three-dimensional solid from a collection of two-dimensional contours. One method for this reconstruction involves a procedure whereby individual pairs of contours are mapped together to form triangular surface patches. In this paper, we present an algorithm which not only handles mapping situations of simple, closed contours but also mappings of multiple contours per plane and partial contour mappings. Also included is a discussion of the algorithm"s limitations and heuristics.

One of them (Optimal surface reconstruction from planar contours) is based on the dynamic programming technique and uses a cost function for determining which triangulation is . construction of a surface triangular mesh from planar -section contours. Here we provide an approach to tetrahedralize the solid region bounded by planar contours and the surface mesh. It is a difﬁcult task because the solid can be of high genus (several through holes) as well as have complicated branching regions.

We introduce a tool to build a surface mesh able to deal with sparse, heterogeneous, non-parallel, cross-sectional, non-coincidental contours and show its application to reconstruct surfaces of the heart. In recent years, much research has looked at creating personalised 3D anatomical models of the heart. These models usually incorporate a geometrical reconstruction of the anatomy in order to Cited by: 3.

An illustrated example which involves the construction of a minimum area surface describing a human head is by: Next, we use Voronoi diagrams and operations on a planar map to create a partition, which guarantees a correct reconstruction.

Finally, a surface-interpolation algorithm is applied to the contours translated according to both their correspondence and the created partition to produce the actual surface. contour interpolation algorithm was implemented in SlicerRT for reconstructing surfaces from planar contours.

The implemented algorithm was able to generate qualitatively good 3D mesh from the set of 2D contours for most tested structures. Keywords: surface reconstruction, contour interpolation, triangulation, radiation therapy 1. INTRODUCTION. Abstract. This paper researches the method of constructing 3D surface from planar contours.

We base our work on distance field function method and mainly concentrate on how to simply and uniformly solve the problems of isosurface generation caused by non-manifold surface.

Our work includes three main steps: grid adjustment analysis, Author: Xiaohui Liang, Xiaoxiao Wu, Aimin Liang, Chuanpeng Wang. The problem of surface construction from two-dimensional parallel planes is characterized by mapping and triangulating pairs of planar contours into surface patches that form a display.

The surface construction algorithm identifies the appropiate contours, including the specific portions of those contours, that should be mapped. The problem addressed here is the determination of three-dimensional surfaces given the planar contours of cross-sections of the surface. The authors first describe past work on the four main aspects of this problem, namely, correspondence, tiling, branching, and surface fitting.

The new work focuses on the correspondence and branching : MeyersDavid, SkinnerShelley, SloanKenneth. Book, volume I & II. NASA Reference Publication [30] Anonymous. Nasa man-systems integration manual.

An algorithm solving this problem must decide which contours of two successive slices should be connected by the surface (branching problem) and, given that, which vertices of the assigned contours should be connected for the triangular mesh (correspondence problem).Cited by: tomatically reconstructing surfaces from planar contours.

Our al-gorithm is based on scanline rendering and separating surface ex-traction. By rendering the contours as distinctly colored polygons and reading back each rendered slice into a segmented volume, we reduce the complex problem of building a surface from planar con.

Construction of the tetrahedral mesh of a solid bounded by planar contours and the surface mesh is difficult because the solid can be of high genus (several through holes) and have branching regions. Surface reconstruction from contours is an important problem especially in medical applications.

Other uses include reconstruction from topographic data, or isosurface generation in general. The drawback of existing reconstruction algorithms from contours is, that they are relatively complicated and often have numerical by: 5.

Thus each tile is.A novel contour generation algorithm is developed to convert dexel data into a series of planar contours on parallel slices. The algorithm categorizes the dexels on two adjacent rays into different groups by using a “grouping” criterion.
