  • Patent number: 11826109
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for guiding a surgeon to acquire one or more registration points on a body of a patient. The method includes matching a non-patient-specific virtual mask to image data of a patient, and obtaining a plurality of image surface points defining a skin surface in the image data. The method further comprises determining, based on the matched virtual mask, for at least one of the plurality of image surface points, a priority value indicative of a priority for acquiring a registration point at a position, relative to the patient's body, that corresponds to a position of the at least one image surface point relative to the skin surface defined in the image data. The method also includes triggering display of a visualization of the priority value, or of a visualization of information derived from the priority value.

  • Patent number: 11790605
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for 3D reconstruction including obtaining 2D images and, for each 2D image, camera parameters which define a perspective projection. The 2D images all represent a same real object. The real object is fixed. The method also includes obtaining, for each 2D image, a smooth map. The smooth map has pixel values, and each pixel value represents a measurement of contour presence. The method also includes determining a 3D modeled object that represents the real object. The determining iteratively optimizes energy. The energy rewards, for each smooth map, projections of silhouette vertices of the 3D modeled object having pixel values representing a high measurement of contour presence. This forms an improved solution for 3D reconstruction.
