    To allow an efficient assessment of lower limb alignment and hip fracture, 3D lower limb bone models are reconstructed from patient-specific computed tomography images. The 3D feature-construction system shown here automatically extracts 3D features (centers, auxiliary points, axes, and planes). No other work exists that automatically marks all the features for the lower extremities. View full abstract»

  • Computer Simulation Techniques in Giant Cell Tumor Curettage and Defect Reconstruction

    Giant cell tumors (GCT) are often treated with curettage followed by defect reconstruction. In this study, curettage of a femoral GCT was simulated on a patient-specific computer model, and the defective femur was converted to a plastic prototype to guide onsite GCT curettage. Three reconstruction methods were simulated to achieve an optimal surgical plan. View full abstract»

    To investigate the interaction between stereocilia and the links of inner hair cells during the motion of the organ of Corti and local stress distribution, two 3D finite-element models were built. Static and dynamic simulation results showed that the top of stereocilia at the intermediate row might be a key location for activating gated ion channels. View full abstract»

    Surgery for congenital aural atresia is technically challenging because of the complicated and variant anatomic structures involved. EarCanalDriller was developed and validated for the preoperative evaluation and surgical design of atresia surgeries. It could serve as a vital supplement to the Jahrsdoerfer grading system in determining surgical feasibility. View full abstract»

  • Effectively Visualizing the Spatial Structure of Cerebral Blood Vessels

    Three-dimensional visualizations of cerebral vessel structures are helpful for diagnosing diseases. However, when viewing several overlapping cerebral vessels using traditional ray casting, it's difficult to decide clear depth ordering. As a solution, distance color blending and stereoscopic depth enhancement are combined with CUDA-based pre-integrated volume rendering and its advanced transfer function for improved depth perception.

    A current challenge in tropical cyclone research is to improve our understanding of TC formation and intensification by studying TC interactions with environmental flows. A coupled, advanced global multiscale modeling and concurrent visualization system (CAMVis) shows potential for such studies, especially with the integration of StreamPack-a quasi-3D streamline package.

  • Simulations to Usher in the Era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

    Publication Year: 2013 , Page(s): 60 - 65

    A new era of astronomy is near, in which interferometers on Earth and pulsar timing observations will provide an entirely new view of the universe using gravitational waves. These waves will complement the very different images from electromagnetic waves (such as conventional telescopes) and will illuminate systems from which we detect no electromagnetic emission.

    In this case study, we study a method for computing the position of an Earth-orbiting spacecraft as a function of time. As an exercise, we compute the position of John Glenn's Mercury spacecraft Friendship 7 as it orbited the Earth during the third flight of NASA's Mercury program. View full abstract»

    Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia, and it is associated with increased risk of stroke, heart failure, and mortality. This work describes spectral analysis techniques that are being used in conjunction with visualization algorithms to help guide catheter ablation procedures that aim at treating patients with arrhythmia.
