Preliminary investigation of the digital human head

McCarthy, Elizabeth and Wen, Peng (2005) Preliminary investigation of the digital human head. In: 1st International Conference on Complex Medical Engineering (CME 2005), 15-18 May 2005, Takamatsu, Japan.


This paper addresses the work to develop a computationally inexpensive and fast method of building an anatomically
accurate and dynamic three-dimensional digital model of the human head. The digital head model is proposed to be used as a versatile tool where the orientation of the head model, and the tissue property information and tissue layers displayed are controlled by user input. A complete three-dimensional head model is constructed from many MRI slice scans with the coordinates of each boundary point stored in a three-dimensional array.
