    Computer graphics has now matured in medical applications from 2D and 3D presentations for diagnosis and the planning of surgery and therapy to become the key step in making hand-held models of custom prostheses. The system described here delivers 3D shape information to create skeletal models, plan corrective surgery, and directly manufacture prostheses. Implants and anatomic models are manufactu...

    Improved implant-bone fit appears to increase the longevity of cementless total joints. This article describes design software that uses 3D bone models generated from X-ray computerized tomography to produce optimal-fit hip stems for individual femurs. The result is an implant designed to optimize load transfer and minimize stem motion within a given bone. View full abstract»

    Worldview is a computer-aided architectural and engineering design system that combines the power of geometric modeling utilities with the intuitive design and communication capabilities of drafting utilities. This article describes the basic design concepts and implementation of the system, achieved by representing the designed artifact nonredundantly in a three-dimensional "world" and manipulati...

    Generating arbitrary perspective views of images portraying 3D surfaces can involve extensive computation and data I/O time because of the problems in determining visibility, and performing hidden-point removal. Appropriate 1D transforms of an image can allow hidden-point removal and perspective projection to be performed on scan lines or columns of these transforms. Perspective view generation th...
