Abstract

In this work we present an articulated statistical shape model (ASSM) of the human knee. The model incorporates statistical shape variation plus explicit degrees of freedom that model physiological joint motion. We also present a strategy for segmentation of the knee joint from medical image data. We show the potential of the model via an evaluation on a set of 40 clinical MRI datasets with manual expert segmentations available.
