Paper Abstract

The `SpiderWeb'' is an algorithm that constructs an oriented, manifold, and unbounded triangle mesh isosurface in noisy volume data. The surface normals consistently point outward in the direction of lower density. Each triangle is edge adjacent to precisely one other triangle. Because of this property, there can be no artifactual `holes'' or `tears'' in the surface. The surface is constructed using only local information and has these global properties. SpiderWeb''s main application is surface construction in noisy MRI and ultrasound data. The constructed surface is appropriate for modeling brain anatomy geometry for further functional modeling applications.
