We are working on different projects with partners from industry and academia.

Shape Model Fitting Software

Tailored specifically for rapidly fitting statistical shape models to medical images, this software is an ideal companion for regular tasks such as model-based segmentation and implant fitting.

iLeg

Supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), in this project we developed a system called “iLeg” that allowed reconstructing a patient-specific 3D models of the complete lower extremity from clinically available X-rays for true 3D planning and evaluation of surgical interventions of the lower extremity. Supported interventions include lower extremity osteotomy and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Starting from a limited number (e.g., 2) of X-rays of a lower extremity, our system can reconstruct 3D patient-specific models of both femur and tibia, which then allows for computing various geometric and morphological parameters of the lower extremity in a weight-bearing situation.
The derived 3D patient-specific models of the lower extremity also allow us to plan and simulate surgical interventions.
