Reconstruction anatomique assistée par ordinateur: l'exemple de la prostate

Résumé

Les auterurs rapportent une technique de reconstruction tridimensionnelle assistée par ordinateur en utilisant les informations de coupes sériées. Cette reconstruction a été faite avec un micro-ordinateur courant. Cette technique a été appliquée à la reconstruction d'une prostate de lapin commun européen.
