3D Cranio-Facial Surface Modeling from 2D CT Slices Using Fast Corner Detector

Menaka. R and Chellamuthu C.

Abstract—This paper presents a novel approach for 3D Cranio-Facial reconstruction using Fast Corner detector. The Method involves Bilateral Filtering as the preprocessing step to suppress unwanted distortions.The contours representing the bony areas of the skull are extracted using Region of interest processing.The feature points required for the point cloud generation are detected by FAST corner detector. The generated point cloud is subjected to Delaunay triangulation for surface reconstruction. The results are compared with three different 3D reconstruction methods.

Index Terms—Fast Corner Detector, point cloud, 3D Reconstruction, Triangulation
