Project Description

This research will establish a method to build the deformation model of non-uniform biological objects based on their inner measurement. We will obtain the deformation field inside the object using CT and MRI to estimate non-uniform deformation parameters.
2012/9/28 Proposal to R-GIRO Program on e-Health was accepted.
2011/12/10 Dr. Xubing Zhang was nominated to Finalist of T. J. Tarn Best Paper in Robotics by TPS-SURF-SAC Matching Approach of Feature Point Applied to Deformation Measurement of Nonrigid Tissues from MR Images.
