Abstract

The authors present the results of a pilot investigation into the use of stereo-photogrammetry for capturing the 3D surface anatomy of the living breast to allow non-contact volumetric assessment for surgery planning purposes. Breast volume measurement is investigated in terms of chest wall-breast segmentation methods, inter and intra operator variability and pose.
