Spread-Sheet Execution of Shape-from-Shading for Human Back Surface Measurement



University of Newcastle, Newcastle, Australia


Shape-from-shading is a shape measurement technique which features simple data collection. However, it is restricted in the types of objects it can measure. These characteristics do make it suitable for some types of body surface measurement, but it does not yet seem to have found many applications. This paper looks at whether the simple data collection can be augmented by equally straightforward data processing to make it feasible for scoliosis monitoring. Experiments have confirmed the basic concept of back surface measurement by SFS, but that further practical refinement is needed.
