Paper Abstract

This paper presents the visibility study of a methodology for the acquisition and the generation of 3-D shapes, from MRI images, based on specific requests. The MRI image regions are extracted and represented in 2-D shapes associated with their bit map form. The development of the 3-D shape of a desirable region in a brain can be produced by the synthesis of the 2-D shapes (bit-maps) of the particular MRI regions. The acquisition of the 2-D regions, which belong to the same 3-D brain area (i.e. tumor, hematoma), is based on a search process of the successive MRI images to detect the same undesirable value in a relative close location with the one detected in the previous MRI region. Experimental results are also provided to illustrate the potential of the proposed method.
