Novel Methods of Working with 3D Bioimaging Data

Author(s): Jordan Elevons

3D Bioimaging data is typically shunted through only a few specialized tools, such as Materialise Mimics. However, by conceptualizing 3D data as simply a list of points in space one can open up a wide array of tools and methods for working with that data and getting to a wider variety of useful outcomes much more quickly. This session will use examples to discuss how imaging data - from CAT scans to 3D surface scans - can be segmented, modified and printed in exciting new ways. Examples include cranioplastic implants, prosthetic legs and novel methods of 3D volumetric segmentation using freely-available software.
