Figure 5: Results obtained with the 3D reconstruction component of MoDef 3D Visual environment: (a) initial 3D representation of the deformable surface of the surgical mesh, (b) curve representing a section of the surgical mesh acquired by the transducer, extracted from the context of the US image based on specific-image processing method, (c) the surface of the prosthetic mesh after the deformations produced in time due to the anatomic assimilation process, and (d) the basic set of generating curves, used to obtain the solid-view representations of the prosthetic mesh.
