Abstract

In this paper we provide an overview of the field of shape and motion analysis with applications in biology and medicine. We review several major concepts for the comparison and statistical analysis of shape and motion. A focus, especially concerning the presented applications, is on our own recent work. Our aim is to provide an introduction for readers from the field of computer vision less familiar with biological and medical applications. The technique of non-rigid parametric registration takes center stage of our approach. An application to the visualization and quantitative analysis of stent-graft motion is presented and several biological applications are resumed.
