Book Chapter
Phillips, R., Mohsen, A., Viant, W., Malek, S., Li, Q., Shah, N., …Sherman, K. (2004). A phantom based approach to fluoroscopic navigation for orthopaedic surgery. In Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention – MICCAI 2004; Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 621-628. Springer Verlag. doi:10.1007/978-3-540-30136-3_76

The use of the C-arm fluoroscope for surgical navigation in various Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery Systems (CAOS) has been an important success of research into CAOS technology. To use the fluoroscope for quantitative surgical navigation invol... Read More

Least squares ellipsoid specific fitting (2004)
Conference Proceeding
Li, Q., & Griffiths, J. (2004). Least squares ellipsoid specific fitting. In Geometric Modeling and Processing, 2004. Proceedings, 335 - 340. doi:10.1109/gmap.2004.1290055

In this paper, a sufficient condition for a quadric surface to be an ellipsoid has been developed and a closed-form solution for ellipsoid fitting is developed based on this constraint, which is a best fit to the given data amongst those ellipsoids w... Read More

Implicit curve and surface design using smooth unit step functions (2004)
Conference Proceeding
Li, Q., & Phillips, R. (2004). Implicit curve and surface design using smooth unit step functions. In SM '04 Proceedings of the ninth ACM symposium on Solid modeling and applications, 237 - 242

This paper presents an implicit curve and surface design technique that uses smooth unit step functions. With the proposed method, an implicit curve or surface can be generated by inputting a sequence of points together with the normals at these poin... Read More

Implicit fitting using radial basis functions with ellipsoid constraint (2004)
Journal Article
Li, Q., Wills, D., Phillips, R., Viant, W. J., Griffiths, J. G., & Ward, J. (2004). Implicit fitting using radial basis functions with ellipsoid constraint. Computer graphics forum : journal of the European Association for Computer Graphics, 23(1), 55-69. doi:10.1111/j.1467-8659.2004.00005.x

Implicit planar curve and surface fitting to a set of scattered points plays an important role in solving a wide variety of problems occurring in computer graphics modelling, computer graphics animation, and computer assisted surgery. The fitted impl... Read More
