To avoid lung disease, regular preemptive screenings are an absolute necessity. This article describes a technique that creates a 3D reconstruction of the ribcage without expensive scanners. One of the major uses of this 3D reconstruction software would be as a medical visualization tool that would show the real shape of a ribcage. This 3D reconstruction method could be combined with diagnosis software to help detect lung cancer, to generate 3D size estimates, and to improve visualization of affected regions.
