Creating the Head Model
A high resolution in-vivo whole head MRI scan of a male volunteer was acquired at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital with a slice to slice separation of 1.04001 mm. The subject was 25 years old, 1.8m tall, and weighed 81 kg.
The data was imported to Simpleware ScanIP for segmentation, with a range of software tools used to identify multiple regions of interest, including skin, muscles, and soft tissue.
Simpleware CAD was employed to build additional regions, such as the facial and neck muscles, using voxelization methods. This method also allows helmets, pathologies and probes to be incorporated into image data.
