Conference Paper: Unambiguous Analysis of Woman Breast Shape for Plastic Surgery Outcome Evaluation.
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This paper reports a multidisciplinary research between computer science and plastic and reconstructive surgery. In particular, a new method is proposed to unambiguously define a geometric partitioning of a large thoracic area including the breast mound. The new technique uses only welldefined anatomical points, defined and selected by surgeons. A simple sequence of geometric operations is performed to partition the breast surface into four anatomic subunits, according to clinically derived breast meridian and equator lines. Using this breast shape partition, useful measurement can be extrapolated on D model data set. Our method has been validated on a number of breast 3D models acquired by means of a commercial scanner on real clinical cases collected by Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori in Milan (INT).Fourth Eurographics Italian Chapter Conference 2006, University of Catania, Italy, 2224 February 2006; 01/2006  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We develop a novel method for fitting highresolution template meshes to detailed human body range scans with sparse 3D markers. We formulate an optimization problem in which the degrees of freedom are an affine transformation at each template vertex. The objective function is a weighted combination of three measures: proximity of transformed vertices to the range data, similarity between neighboring transformations, and proximity of sparse markers at corresponding locations on the template and target surface. We solve for the transformations with a nonlinear optimizer, run at two resolutions to speed convergence. We demonstrate reconstruction and consistent parameterization of 250 human body models. With this parameterized set, we explore a variety of applications for human body modeling, including: morphing, texture transfer, statistical analysis of shape, model fitting from sparse markers, feature analysis to modify multiple correlated parameters (such as the weight and height of an individual), and transfer of surface detail and animation controls from a template to fitted models.ACM Trans.

Conference Paper: The CAESAR project: a 3D surface anthropometry survey
[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The CAESAR study (Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource) is a survey of body measurements for people ages 1865 in three countries: USA, The Netherlands, and Italy. It is a collaborative effort with partners from several countries and many industries. It employs the latest in 3D measurement technology, and is the first 3D surface anthropometry survey of the US and Europe. Data from the study will allow us to effectively design everything from better fitting clothes and protective equipment to better seats and workstations, as well as dramatically reducing the cost to design and manufacture them3D Digital Imaging and Modeling, 1999.
