Given 1mm contiguous CT slices of the distal end of the femur, does anyone
have or know of code for calulating the curvatures across the surface of
the bone? This is a TALL order, and any suggestions or routines for doing
the various steps (fitting a smooth continuous curve through the bone contour
of each slice, surface patch fitting, surface smoothing, etc.) would also be
greatly appreciated. My present computer platform is a Mac with preferably
C code. However, if there are other platforms that are better suited I
would greatly appreciate any recommendations.
