Skull assembly and completion using template-based surface matching

Document Type

Publication Date



We present a skull assembly and completion framework based on shape matching. In order to assemble fragmented skulls, we need to compute rigid transformations from these fragments to their assembled geometry. We develop a reliable assembly pipeline where each fragment is matched and transformed to be aligned with the template. In order to further complete the assembled skull with several damaged regions, we use the template to repair damaged regions on the assembled skull. The entire pipeline has been conducted on several real skull models and demonstrated great robustness and effectiveness. © 2011 IEEE.
