Paper Abstract

A microcomputer-based image processing system is integrated to do three-dimensional reconstruction of serial sections of brain CT/MRI scans from photographic films. The brain scans are taken with a stereotactic registration frame mounted on the patient''s head as reference, thus enabling quantitative 3D reconstruction to sub-mm accuracy. The software includes digitization, data compression, data archiving, image processing, pattern recognition, features retrieval and 3D reconstruction. With manual driven interactive 3D graphics, the system enables neurosurgeons and medical physicists to do interactive diagnostics, analysis and treatment planning. The system put together in this way satisfies both low cost and high efficiency requirements in the Far East medical environment.
