This study evaluated the reproducibility of 24 soft tissue landmarks on six three-dimensional (3D) facial scans. The scans were taken on a DSP400 facial scanner and were viewed using a customized software program. Intraoperator data were obtained by one researcher placing the 24 landmarks on all six scans a total of 30 times. Thirty different orthodontists of varying experience were then asked to place all 24 landmarks on each of the six facial scans in order to establish interoperator reproducibility. The standard deviations (SDs) from the mean were calculated from the data for each individual landmark in the x-, y-, and z-axes.. For the intraoperator data, 12 of the 24 landmarks were found to be reproducible to within a 1 mm SD for each plane of space. The interoperator data showed lower reproducibility with just two landmarks showing less than a 1 mm SD in all three planes of space.. Familiarity with 3D facial scans and associated software programs is important in improving reproducibility. ...
Background: This study was performed to ultrasonographically demonstrate the changes in relationship between the right IJV and an anatomical landmark in two different head positions: neutral and rotational.. Methods: One hundred patients scheduled for elective surgery under general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation were enrolled in this study. The patients were placed in the supine position with a neutral head position and without a pillow. The apex of the triangle formed by the sternal and clavicular heads of the sternocleidomastoid muscle and clavicle was marked (anatomical landmark point: AL point). The ultrasonography of the neck anatomy was performed, and a mark was placed at the central point of the IJV to the skin (ultrasonography point: US point). The other investigator measured the distances from the AL point to the US point (AL-US distance). The patients head was then turned 30° to the left; the same procedure was repeated and the AL-US distance was again measured. The changes ...

A method and system for generating a color-textured three-dimensional dental model is specific to a patient is disclosed. According to one embodiment, a three-dimensional dental model that is deficient of volumetric data for a three-dimensional anatomical landmark is obtained. A two-dimensional anatomical landmark of a two-dimensional intra-oral photograph that corresponds to the three-dimensional anatomical landmark of the three-dimensional dental model is identified. The two-dimensional intra-oral photograph is projected onto the three-dimensional dental model. The three-dimensional anatomical landmark is calculated from the projection of the two-dimensional anatomical landmark of the two-dimensional intra-oral photograph.
In this research, Procrustes and Euclidean distance matrix analysis (EDMA) have been investigated for analysing the three-dimensional shape and form of the human back. Procrustes analysis is used to distinguish deformed backs from normal backs. EDMA is used to locate the changes occurring on the back surface due to spinal deformity (scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis) for back deformity patients. A surface topography system, ISIS2 (Integrated Shape Imaging System 2), is available to measure the three-dimensional back surface. The system presents clinical parameters, which are based on distances and angles relative to certain anatomical landmarks on the back surface. Location, rotation and scale definitely influence these parameters. Although the anatomical landmarks are used in the present system to take some account of patient stance, it is still felt that variability in the clinical parameters is increased by the use of length and angle data. Patients also grow and so their back size, shape and ...

The purpose of this study was to identify the craniofacial planes showing a strong correlation with lip canting in a 3D virtual model. Our findings revealed lip canting was strongly correlated with the mandibular symmetry plane.. Lip canting occurs as a result of hard and soft tissue incongruity, including skeletal and muscular inclinations, and is known to be influenced by the occlusal plane, maxillary canting, the difference between the lengths of the two mandibular rami, and menton deviation.5,10,20,21 Midsagittal plane setting is important in the research on facial asymmetry, as the asymmetry and its degree are determined in reference to these planes. In most studies, researchers have used the nasion, sella, crista galli, and ANS as landmarks to set the midsagittal plane.22 However, this sagittal plane is not reliable when there is cranial or midfacial asymmetry.23 In order to overcome this problem, Ras et al.24 proposed that the plane vertically bisecting the horizontal reference plane ...
This paper deals with edge detection in 3d images such as scanner, magnetic resonance (NMR), or spatio-temporal data. We propose an unified formalism form 3d edge detection using optimal, recursive and separable filters recently introduced for 2d edge detection. Then we obtain some efficient 3d edge detection algorithms having a low comptutational cost. We also show that 3d edge closing enable to extract many edges not provided by the filtering stage without introducing noisy edges. Experimental results obtained on NMR images are shown.

The bones are the structural core of the figure. Any artist looking to work with the figure will find a thorough understanding of the forms and functions of the bones indispensable. We call the places at which the bones come closest to the surface of the skin, and are easily identifiable beneath it, the surface landmarks of the bones. These landmarks serve as clues to tell us all we need to know about the bones that support the figure: their orientation, shape and size. If we learn to identify the surface landmarks of the bones we will have a firm foundation for all our subsequent anatomical study.. From this masterful study by Poynter we can see how important a study of the bones was to the masters of the past. Students in the 19th century academies were expected to be able to draw any element of the figure entirely from memory. This requires a great deal of anatomical study. One of the best practices for this study is to draw the a skeleton in the same orientation as your figure study, as ...

In a method and apparatus for matching at least one visualized medical measured result of a test subject with at least one dataset of the test subject by means of landmarks, landmarks with respect to the displayed test subject are defined in every visualized measured result to be matched and every dataset to be matched. The geometrical arrangement of the landmarks in every measured result and each dataset is analyzed by a first algorithm, and subsequently an allocation of corresponding landmarks of the at least one visualized measured result and of the at least one dataset to form a landmark pair ensues with a second algorithm.

Background: For most items used in operating rooms, it is unclear whether reusable items are environmentally and financially advantageous in comparison with single-use variants. We examined the life cycles of reusable and single-use central venous catheter kits used to aid the insertion of single-use, central venous catheters in operating rooms. We did not examine the actual disposable catheter sets themselves. We assessed the entire financial and environmental costs for the kits, including the influence of the energy source used for sterilization.. Methods: For the reusable central venous catheter kit, we performed a "time-in-motion" study to determine the labor costs and measured the energy and water consumption for cleaning and sterilization at Western Health, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Intraoperative anatomic landmarks for resection of the amygdala during medial temporal lobe surgery. AU - Tubbs, R. Shane. AU - Miller, Joseph H.. AU - Cohen-Gadol, Aaron A.. AU - Spencer, Dennis D.. PY - 2010/5/1. Y1 - 2010/5/1. N2 - OBJECTIVE: To establish reliable gross landmarks for resecting the amygdala intraoperatively, especially during anteromedial temporal lobectomy and amygdalohippocampectomy for epilepsy surgery. Reliable landmarks would allow its safe and complete resection as well as its potential en bloc removal for detailed electrophysiological and histopathological analyses. METHODS: Ten adult cadavers (20 sides) were used. Two adjacent anatomic structures were identified: the bifurcation of the middle cerebral artery (MCA point) and the entry point of the anterior choroidal artery (AChoA) at the anterior origin of the choroid plexus into the temporal horn (inferior choroidal point referred to as the AChoA point). Following removal of the brain tissue inferior ...

A shot to the upper central nervous system is more certain to stop violent activity immediately, but is also much more difficult to deliver. The spinal cord is only about as thick as its owners little finger, and is encased in a serpentine column of bone. Even a shot to the brain is not 100% guaranteed to instantly shut off the action. The only certain "instant one shot stop" is a hit to the stem area of the brain, which destroys the medulla oblongata or pons. This is in line with the ears when aimed at from the side, and with the base of the skull when the shot must be fired from behind. The external anatomic landmark for a frontal shot will vary depending upon the position of the head.. If the head is erect in the normal posture, the deep brain target will lie directly behind the nose. If the head is forward in an aggressive posture, the level of the eye sockets will be in line with the primal brain target that must be hit. If the head is thrown back as in a triumphant shout, aiming through ...

Medical students often tend to stay away from obese patients while sharpening their examination skills in the hospital. This is understandable, granted the plethora of difficulties that the process requires. It is significantly harder to palpate various body organs and bony landmarks. Respiratory, cardiac, vascular and, needless to say, abdominal sounds are often muffled and difficult to hear.. It also takes a fair amount of practice to perform various clinical procedures on larger patients. House officers often find themselves struggling to find the right vein to pass a cannula. The blood pressure reading acquired from a sphygnomanometer could be less reliable. Even a skilled anaesthesiologists expression may rapidly turn dark at a request to anaesthetize an obese gentleman..

The mechanical activation of the heart (dZ/dt) will always be preceded by the electrical activation of the heart identified by the QRS complex of the ECG signal. Rather than identifying landmarks on the dZ/dt waveform cycle by cycle in the IMP Analysis application, only the R peak on the ECG series is identified. Using this R peak as an anchor, a section of data from both ECG and dZ/dt is extracted. These extracted portions are averaged over the course of the segment of time being analyzed, producing an average representation of the relationship between ECG and dZ/dt for that segment. Essentially, the ensemble average is produced by lining up all of the identified R peaks on top of each other and then averaging the overlapping signals.. Note: Only "good" (non-artifact) R peaks are used to build the ensemble average. This ensures that only quality representations of cardiac cycles are included.. The amount of data extracted surrounding each R peak is chosen on the IMP Calibration Settings tab on ...

Most visual Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) methods use interest points as landmarks in their maps of the environment. Often the interest points are detected using contrast features, for instance those of the Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT). The SIFT interest points, however, have problems with stability, and noise robustness. Taking our inspiration from human vision, we therefore propose the use of local symmetry to select interest points. Our method, the MUlti-scale Symmetry Transform (MUST), was tested on a robot-generated database including ground-truth information to quantify SLAM performance. We show that interest points selected using symmetry are more robust to noise and contrast manipulations, have a slightly better repeatability, and above all, result in better overall SLAM performance.. ...

Ultrasound-guided central venous catheterization uses real-time ultrasound during catheter insertion3,4,7 or before the procedure to mark the skin surface.2,6 Both methods have been associated with higher success rates than the traditional anatomical landmark method, even when performed by operators with limited experience (table 3). The National Institute for Clinical Excellence guidelines have recommended the real-time use of ultrasound during central vein catheterization in all patients, children and adults.8 However, a controversy has recently emerged with respect to the use of the real-time method in the pediatric population. In the study by Grebenik et al. ,9 the outcomes associated with the real-time method were surprisingly poor compared with the anatomical landmark method. We hypothesize that, when the procedure is attempted by experienced operators, the use of ultrasound might be a disturbance,10 and that the presence of the ultrasound probe in a limited work space represents an ...
Expressing emotions through eyebrow movements is part of being human. In fact, its even more basic than that. Its part of being a primate, as all primates send social messages through eyebrow activity.. But unlike many of our primate cousins, humans have a high level of contrast between our brows and the hairless skin that encircles them, thus emphasizing the brow region during communication.. Eyebrows importance is also passed on through culture. For centuries, in cultures worldwide, abundant hair has been linked to fertility, strength, and power. This association has often extended to eyebrows. Ancient people beautified their brows with makeup and shaping, and people do so even now.. Eyebrows can display facial symmetry. And they can be altered cosmetically to disguise asymmetry. Facial symmetry is often mentioned as a key factor in human attractiveness. People may be programmed to associate symmetrical features with health of potential mates.. For more details, take a look at my post, ...
In people, TSHS to remove the tumor is the most successful long-term therapy. Surgical cure rates for people are reported to be in the range of 65-85 percent with a recurrence rate of 25 percent within five years. Hypophysectomy in dogs resulted in similar long-term remission rates. Procedural mortality rate associated with TSHS is approximately 8-20 percent and incomplete hypophysectomy occurs in about 6 percent of the cases. Two primary limiting factors to widespread use of TSHS and subsequent successful surgery are: (1) difficulty in accurately defining the bony borders of the sella turcica based on anatomic landmarks alone; and (2) difficulty in visualizing the surgical site because of poor illumination and magnification. A high-definition telescope system (VITOMTM, Karl Storz Endoscopy, Tuttlingen, Germany) has been used successfully and repeatedly by human surgeons during microneurosurgeries such as craniotomies and spinal surgery. The VITOMTM functions like a microscope and has improved ...

The target position is assumed to be defined by and is stochastically determined from positions of various features such as anatomical landmarks or markers in CB projections, i.e., radiographs acquired with a CB-CT system. The patient positioning problem of finding the target location from CB projections is posed as an inverse problem with prior knowledge and is solved using a Bayesian maximum a posteriori (MAP) approach. The prior knowledge is three-fold and includes the accuracy of an initial patient setup (such as in-room laser and skin marks), the plasticity of the body (relative shifts between target and features), and the feature detection error in CB projections (which may vary depending on specific detection algorithm and feature type). For this purpose, MAP estimators are derived and a procedure of using them in clinical practice is outlined. Furthermore, a rule of thumb is theoretically derived, relating basic parameters of the prior knowledge (initial setup accuracy, plasticity of the ...
Fig. 1: Methodology for selecting healthy and sick subject reference groups in order to construct ROC curves for the determination of VAI cut-offs. Maracaibo city.. Subject evaluation. Data were collected through completion of a full clinical record carried out by trained personnel, which included interrogation regarding the individuals medical history and drug use, as well as their ethnic group, educational status, socioeconomic status, and employment status.. Anthropometry. Weight was assessed using a digital scale (Tanita, TBF-310 GS Body Composition Analyzer, Tokyo, Japan), while height was obtained with a calibrated rod; the subjects were barefooted and wearing light clothing at all times. For the quantification of BMI, the [weight/height2] formula was utilized and results were expressed in kg/m2. WC was measured using a calibrated measuring tape in accordance with the anatomical landmarks proposed by the USA National Institutes of Health protocol.10. Laboratory analysis. Overnight fasting ...

A posture training device (100) includes a frame (102) and a module (116) floatingly engaged with the frame (102). The device (100) can be held snugly against the backbone of a person by a belt (122) or garment (124), such that an increase in curvature of the backbone in either the midsagittal plane or a transverse plane moves the module (116) relative to the frame (102). When the module (116) has been moved sufficiently to indicate a poor posture position, a tactile signal generator (160, 162) within the module (116) is activated to vibrate, thereby alerting the person that he or she has assumed a poor posture.
Next, the researchers tested whether dung beetles rely on more distant landmarks to know where theyre going. They created two adjacent, but different, testing arenas: One had an unobstructed view of the surrounding landscape (called the "landmark arena"), and the other was surrounded by a beige featureless wall (called the "no-landmark arena"). Both arenas had a full view of the sky and its celestial cues. They placed beetles and their poo-balls at the center of the landmark arena and allowed them to roll away at least 80 cm. Then they picked them up and placed them in the no-landmark arena and waited to see if the removal of landmarks caused them to roll in the same direction or change bearings. They repeated this in the opposite direction to see if the addition of landmarks could improve accuracy. To check if simply moving the beetles affected their rolling directions, they also picked beetles up and returned them to their original arenas (these were the control beetles). In the end, the ...
