  1. I have just found your excellent link about python and dicom. We are trying to extract a poly mesh from a dicom file created by a 3D ultrasound sonograph. Our aim is to use our colleges 3D printers to make a physical model of a fetus (12 to 16 weeks old). Do you have any experience of extracting a mesh from an ultrasound scan?

    • Hey Malcolm, while I haven’t done such a surface extraction before I doubt it would be too hard 🙂

      That being said, you’re gonna have a lot of noise in your image data (specks, holes, imaging artifacts) which you would likely want to ‘clean’ prior to extracting your surface so I would suggest a basic smoothing and segmentation with SimpleITK and then surface extraction with VTK. I take you’ve read my corresponding posts on those topics?

      Are we talking several planar cross-sections of the fetus or the kind of dataset used to extract fetus models in a 3D B-mode scan?

  2. Hi!

    I just wanted to thank you for your excellent work! I am a MSc student in Biomedical Engineering and your posts are extremely helpful ant time savers, since I am focusing my work on volume rendering and surface extraction from head CT scans.

    Thank you very much!
