Abstract

This work proposes the Crust algorithm for 3D reconstruction of brain tumor, an effective mechanism in the visualization of tumors for presurgical planning, radiation dose calculation. Despite the promising performance of Crust algorithm in reconstruction of Stanford models, it has not yet been considered in 3D reconstruction of brain tumor. Validation of the results is done using the comparison of the 3D models from two cutting edge techniques namely the Marching Cube and the Alpha shape algorithm. The obtained result shows that Crust algorithm provides the brain tumor model with an average quality of triangle meshes ranging from 0.85 to 0.95. Concerning the visual realism, the quality of Crust algorithm models is higher on comparison to the other models. Precision of tumor volume measurement by convex hull method is analysed by repeatability and reproducibility. The standard deviations of repeatability were between 2.03 % and 3.97 %. The experimental results show that Linear Crust algorithm produces high quality meshes with average quality of equilateral triangles close to 1.
