Generic 3D Geometrical and Mechanical Modeling of the Skin/Subcutaneous Complex by a Procedural Hybrid Method

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNTCS,volume 8789)

Abstract

The aim of this work is to build a 3D geometric and mechanical model of the skin/subcutaneous complex (SSC) which could be adapted to the different parts of the body and to the morphological parameters of the patient. We present first the anatomical pattern of the SSC. Then, we propose a hybrid model which combines volume, membranous and unidimensional models. The complex internal structure of the SSC is automatically created by a procedural process. All the models are defined by some parameters which can be easily measured by medical imaging. We describe several preliminary experiments which show how this hybrid method models realistic geometrical deformations and physical behaviors and could be used for surgery simulation and planning.
