Analysis of the geometry reconstruction accuracy of the anatomical structure using industrial tomography and laser head

Keywords: reverse engineering, anatomical structure, computed tomography, laser head, accuracy


The article presents a study of impact a reconstruction method on accuracy of mapping the anatomical structure geometry. At the stage of digitalization process, two systems were used: a measuring arm equipped with a laser head and an industrial tomography.
