Abstract

A new method is proposed to unambiguously define a geometric partitioning of 3D models of female thorax. A breast partitioning scheme is derived from simple geometric primitives and well-defined anatomical points. Relevant measurements can be extrapolated from breast partition. Our method has been tested on a number of breast 3D models acquired by means of a commercial scanner on real clinical cases.
