Extracting Data

This 3D Kidney model was built using raw data from a CT Scan. The first step is to segment the kidneys from the rest of the scan to create a base mesh of the anatomy.

Clean up the Mesh

Next the Kidney mesh is brought into a program like ZBrush where the basic mesh is reconstructed, and any missing anatomy, such as the ureters, are added to the model. Here simpler geometry is built.

 

Add Detail

With a clean mesh in place, detail is sculpted onto the kidneys, and a texture painted on to the surface.
