A 3-D reconstruction algorithm for interpolation and extrapolation of planar cross sectional data

, : A 3-D reconstruction algorithm for interpolation and extrapolation of planar cross sectional data. IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging 14(4): 765-771

A three dimensional (3-D) reconstruction algorithm utilizing both linear interpolation and linear extrapolation was developed for the study of human prostatic cancer. The algorithm was validated by comparing the volumes and shapes of original to reconstructed objects. Synthetic objects of known geometry and wax models with shapes characteristic of prostatic carcinomas were assessed with standard planimetry and by the digital interpolation-extrapolation method. Volume and multifocality measurements obtained by reconstructing excised prostate glands using histologic maps obtained from whole-mount sections were tested. The new algorithm provided greater accuracy in determining tumor volumes than conventional methods. This model provides a basis for mathematical analysis of prostate cancer lesions.

Background Thiopurines are widely used for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, but are associated with the development of side effects. It has been suggested that the enzyme inosine triphosphate pyrophosphatase (ITPA) plays a role in the...
