Dear BIOMCH-L co-subscribers:

I am looking for a FORTRAN subroutine that provides surface reconstruction
using contour data from serial sections, of the type obtained from CT scans.
Presumably, the input to such a subroutine would consist of the vertices of
each contour level, and the output would provide a connectivity list for a
surface consisting of triangular (or quadrilateral) tiles. I am assuming
that such routines are used very commonly in our field, and that public
domain software which addresses this problem is most likely available.
I would be grateful if anyone could provide me with information on this
topic.

Sincerely,
