Dyna: A Model of Dynamic Human Shape in Motion. Gerard Pons-Moll, Javier Romero, Naureen Mahmood, Michael J. Black.

Date: August 2015. Source: SIGGRAPH 2015. Journal ACM Transactions on Graphics (TOG), Volume 34 Issue 4, Article No. 120. SIGGRAPH Presentation: https://youtu.be/mWthea2K8-Q Abstract: To look human, digital full-body avatars need to have soft-tissue deformations like those of real people. We learn a model of soft-tissue deformations from examples using a high-resolution 4D capture system and…

Development and Validation of a Clinical Assessment Tool for Platysmal Banding in Cervicomental Aesthetics of the Female Neck. S Gupta, N Biskup, G Mattison, A Leis.

Date: July 2015 Source: Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Volume 35, Issue 6, pp NP141-NP146. Background: In facial aesthetics, grading systems are useful tools for planning aesthetic procedures. One key component of rejuvenation—the anterior neck—has been relatively overlooked. In the 1980s, criteria were established for the appearance of a youthful neck. Considering the significant contribution of the…

Date: July 2015. Source: Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, 43(6):907-12. Objectives: To determine the superimposition accuracy of full-face stereophotographic images with 22 cm and 13 cm cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans. Material and methods: 22 cm CBCT scans and corresponding stereophotographic images (3dMD) for 30 subjects requiring orthognathic surgery were randomly selected. A 13 cm…

Comparison of the Facial Morphologies of Identical Twins Using Three-Dimensional Photography: A Case Report. Sedat Altindis, Erdem Hatunoglu, Emine Toptan.

Date: July 2015 Source: Medicine Science | International Medical Journal. Abstract: The facial morphologies of identical twins were compared using the 3dMD three-dimensional (3D) photogrammetry system. 3D images of the faces of 27-year-old identical twins were acquired and then superimposed. The differences were shown in a color histogram generated using 3dMD Vultus software. The faces…
