An Open-Source Model Constructed from the Visible Human Dataset

Image Shifts

The cross-sectional image slices in the Visible Human Dataset do not align perfectly as observed in [12]. At some of the image slices, the picture is significantly shifted compared to the one above it and thus all the slices below that are misaligned by that shift (Fig. 4). To counter the misalignment, the slices where these shifts occur are identified, the amount of the shift is determined, and the slices are shifted back. The shifts were quantized in terms of pixels and their values were determined by maximizing the overlap between the mask of the slices under operation and the slices above them (e.g., mask of slice 1231 was compared to that of slice 1230). The shifts were then confirmed by visual inspection. Table 1 shows the pixel shifts made to the slices while developing the AustinMan model.
