Abstract


The aim of craniofacial reconstruction is to estimate the shape of a face from the shape of the skull. Few works in computerized assisted facial reconstruction have been provided in the past, probably due to technical (poor machine performances and data availability) and theoretical (complexity) reasons. Therefore, the main published works consist in manual reconstructions. In this paper, an original approach proposes first to build a 3D statistical model of the set skull/face from 3D CT scans. Then, a reconstruction method is introduced in order to estimate, from this statistical model, the 3D facial shape of one subject from known skull data.
