Automatic Landmark Propagation for Left and Right Symmetry Assessment of Tibia and Femur: A Computational Anatomy Based Approach

Abstract : Optimal reproduction of normal femur and tibia anatomy is one of the prerequisites for successful designing implants. Usually implant design is based upon an average anatomy. However, little is known, apart from size, on the shape variability of tibia and femur anatomy in different populations. Although there is limited evidence to suggest that there are differences in symmetry between left and right, to our knowledge it has not been yet qualitatively proven. Hence, in order to highlight potential important factors of symmetry in implant design, more detailed knowledge is necessary. This work presents, based upon information from a large virtual bone database, a systematic analysis for left and right variations in femur and tibia anatomy.
