[Three-dimensional reconstruction of the knee joint of digitized Virtual Chinese Male No.1 by finite element simulation].Di Yi Jun Yi Da Xue Xue Bao. 2003 Jun; 23(6):527-9.DY
To provide a three-dimensional (3D) model of the knee joint of digitized Virtual Chinese Male No.1 for finite element simulation, the digitized image data of the serial sections of the virtual human knee joint were imported to a computer for 3D reconstruction using Mimics software after image segmentation and registration. Surface smoothing of the reconstructed model was performed with FreeForm system and transformation to IGES format executed. Following these procedures, the 3D model of IGES format of knee point was reconstructed, which can be used for finite element simulation.
