Abstract: 3D imaging allows the detailed visualization of medical structures that can be very important in the process of treating patients. In this paper we describe a method for generating 3D models representing medical structures, using data derived from a single image showing a single cross-section of an object. The proposed method utilizes a 3D deformable model that is allowed to deform in order to approximate the shape of a medical structure as seen in a single cross-section, allowing in this way the estimation of the complete 3D structure of the object. Experimental results using synthetic data prove the potential of this approach in generating 3D pelvis models.
