2 Cranio-facial reconstruction: What?

3 Manual Craniofacial Reconstruction subjective/ artistic talent Lots of expertise, both explicit (documented) and implicit Errors by inconsistencies in application Misalignment of LM on the skull time consuming Only few reconstructions possible TAYLOR, K. T Forensic Art and Illustration. CRC Press LLC. Introduction Manual Computer Bias Dense LM Data Method Results Discussion Conclusion

4 Computer-based reconstructions Small number of tissue thickness measurement landmarks (LMs) Independent soft tissue thickness and facial surfaces Template-bias: face interpolation with a single facial template (either generic or gender/ancestry/age matched) Introduction Manual Computer Bias Dense LM Data Method Results Discussion Conclusion

5 Removing template bias Using statistical facial templates to remove bias (Claes et al.) Using combined statistical model of facial template and soft tissue thicknesses (Claes et al.)

9 CT scan + Simultaneous visualisation hard & soft tissues - Using ionising radiation PM-CT can be used as golden standard? dehydration! in-vivo CT on control population? only by lowering radiation dose! Volumetric Template Data : CT Introduction Data MR CT LD-CT Method Results Discussion Conclusion

10 Volumetric Template Data : MRI MRI scan + Excellent visualisation of soft tissues - Bone details lost Introduction Data MR CT LD-CT Method Results Discussion Conclusion

11 Low-Dose CT Decrease radiation dose to acceptable (?) level while retaining sufficient quality for diagnosis, therapy or image-based measurements Starting from clinical multi-slice spiral CT protocol (Siemens Sensation 16 (Erlangen, Germany)) by lowering the X-ray source current and voltage and increasing the pitch. Measured effective radiation dose: 0.18 mSv i.o. 1.5 mSv Measuring image quality: thickness differences smaller than a voxel (<0.5 mm).

24 Example

25 Validation Given only small-sized database (N=20), how to separate into test and validation subsets? N-fold Cross-Validation or Leave-one-out CV: –For i=1:NrSubjects Reconstruct Subject i from all other subjects in Database Compare Result to ground truth of i Evaluate Error

26 Qualitative Validation Qualitative: 3D reconstructions vs subset of database (face pool comparisons) Introduction Data Method Results Discussion Conclusion

27 Face pool comparisons

28 Quantitative Validation I Calculate distances between reconstructed and ground truth surface Introduction Data Method Results Discussion Conclusion |d| = 1.6 ± 1.2 mm

29 Quantitative Validation I Gather error statistics over all subjects Define M ( 500) test points on a reference head surface Find corresponding points on all surfaces by non-rigid surface-based warping (Claes et al.) Evaluate error (distance from reconstructed surface to real surface) at test points: mean, std, etc…

30 Quantitative Validation I: results Average (1.9mm)Std (1.7mm)

31 Quantitative Validation II Not reconstruction accuracy but recognition accuracy Based on similarity measure between surfaces or, in this case, M reference points p i (same as before) on the surfaces S Use coordinate-system free representation (invariant to translation/rotation) of surface S Euclidean Distance Matrix E S : E S (i,j) = ||p i -p j ||

32 Quantitative Validation II How to measure similarity between two surfaces S1 and S2? Compare E S1 to E S2 : e.g. –Sum of Squared Differences: ||E S1 -E S2 || = i,j>i ( E S1 (i,j) – E S2 (i,j) ) 2 /L >= 0 –(normalized) Cross-Correlation Invariance to scaling/size by normalizing EDM with size factor, e.g. geometric mean N S (i,j) = E S (i,j) / (E S ), with (E S ) = ( ij E S (i,j) ) 1/L

33 Quantitative Validation II Generate Classification Rank Matrix Correct Rank 1 Classification: 14/20 (13/20) Correct Rank <= 2 Classification: 16/20 (14/20)
