The interleaved partial active shape model (IPASM) search algorithm – towards 3D ultrasound-based bone surface reconstruction

4 pagesPublished: October 27, 2019

Abstract

Several orthopedic applications require a three-dimensional model of the bone. Ultrasound is a radiation-free and cheap alternative to the state-of-the-art imaging modalities if its limitations in terms of image quality and viewing range can be overcome. This work presents in-vitro as well as in-vivo experiments evaluating the IPASM search, a method for combined segmentation, registration as well as extrapolation. The algorithm is capable to reconstruct the distal surface of a phantom femur with an average surface distance error of roughly 1mm in case of in-vitro as well as below 2mm for in-vivo records, even if the shape varies strongly from the initial model.
