Modélisation anatomique utilisateur-spécifique et animation temps-réel : Application à l'apprentissage de l'anatomie

Abstract : To ease the complex task of anatomy learning, there exist many ways to represent and structure anatomy : illustrations, books, cadaver dissections and 3d models. However, it is difficult to understand and analyse anatomy motion, which is essential for medicine students. We present the "Living Book of Anatomy" (LBA), an original and innovative tool to learn anatomy. For a specific user, we superimpose a 3d anatomical model (skin, skeleton, muscles and visceras) onto the user’s color map and we animate it following the user’s movements. We present a real-time mirror-like augmented reality (AR) system. A Kinect is used to capturebody motions.The first innovation of our work is the identification of the user’s body measurements to register our 3d anatomical model. We propose two different methods to register anatomy.The first one is real-time and use affine transformations attached to rigid positioned on each joint given by the Kinect body tracking skeleton in order to deform the 3d anatomical model using skinning to fit the user’s measurements.The second method needs a few minutes to register the anatomy and is divided in 3 parts : skin deformation (using Kinect body tracking skeleton and the Kinect partial point cloud), with it and strict anatomical rules we register the skeleton. Lastly we deformm the soft tissues to completly fill the space inbetween the registered skeleton and skin.Secondly, we want to capture realistically and in real-time the user’s motion. To do that we need to reproduce anatomical structure motion but it is a complex task due to the noisy and often partial Kinect data. We propose here the use of anatomical rules concerning body articulations (angular limits and degrees of freedom) to constraint Kinect captured motion in order to obtain/gain plausible motions. a kalman filter is used to smooth the obtaiined motion capture.Lastly, to embed visual style and interaction, we use a full body reproduction to show general knowledge on human anatomy and its differents joints. We also use a lower-limb as structure of interest to higlight specific anatomical phenomenon, as muscular activity.All these tools have been integrated in a working system detailed in this thesis.We validated our tool/system by presenting it as a live demo during different conferences and through user studies done with students and professionnals from different backgrounds
