Deformable Models for Biomedical Data Analysis

Demetri Terzopoulos

In this summary, I will not attempt to survey the growing cavalcade of research on deformable models in medical image analysis (see, e.g., the forthcoming collection [3]). I will, however, review some of our recent work which applies deformable models to a variety of static and time varying medical data sets from scales on the macroscopic to the microscopic. The subsequent sections focus on the extraction of 3D models from serial microscopy, opthalmic image analysis, dynamic 3D cardiac image analysis, and tracking for biomechanics. The details are available in the references.
