This project focuses on the development of anatomical atlases of the pelvic area for educational purposes: creation of the female pelvic atlas and improvement of the male pelvic atlas. Both using the openanatomy platform and also on a frame for Virtual Reality visualization capabilities based on web.
- To segment the female pelvic anatomy using 3D Slicer (images provided by Dr. Babacar Diao).
- To update the current segmentation of the male pelvic anatomy using 3D Slicer (images provided by Dr. Babacar Diao).
- To export the vtk models obtained from the segmentation into the openanatomy structure using the web atlas editor.
- To export the vtk models obtained from the segmentation to .obj format, in order to assemble the VR scene using aframe.
Approach and Plan
- Training using the 3D Slicer segment editor
- Image study and selection
- Use the export tools in 3D Slicer
Progress and Next Steps
- Female pelvic anatomy atlas is already finished
- Translation to english-french-spanish is already finished and revised
- Male pelvic anatomy atlas is in the process of refinement
- Lung, with a case of tuberculosis, in on the way
- A mauritanian team is creating another male pelvic anatomy atlas
- Exportation to VR of the female pelvic atlas (the male version has been already exported)
