Paper Abstract

A system that uses stereophotogrammetry to semi-automatically generate three-dimensional facial soft tissue surfaces is presented. The basis of the system is the stereometric technique of Direct Linear Transformation (DLT) which is utilized to eliminate the elaborate instrumentation of present day systems. Automatic digitizing using a scanning image analyzer will require no hand digitizing, and a lightweight headframe will provide orientation information for use in evaluating facial changes. The system is computer based to provide graphic images of the resulting data to ease understanding and to provide the beginnings of a large data base concerning human facial form.
