Paper Abstract

The objective and reproducible definition of a body-fixed coordinate system is of crucial importance for a meaningful interpretation of many biostereometric measurements. A method for defining such a coordinate system using anatomical landmarks is presented. On the back surface many landmarks are characterized by their peculiar curvature. Therefore, the landmarks may be objectively detected by an analysis of the distribution of back surface curvatures.
