CRITICAL UPDATE: Use new XMALab software for marker-based XROMM, and also for undistorting and calibrating biplanar X-ray setups.
XMALab replaces MATLAB XrayProject. See Bitbucket XMALab wiki for XMALab User Manual (not this wiki).
Note: there is a Table of Contents we recommend you use to navigate this xrommwiki. The links on this page are obsolete.
X-Ray Reconstruction of Moving Morphology (XROMM) is an X-ray imaging and computational process that produces precise and accurate 3D movies of skeletal movement.
At Brown University we have developed three main approaches to XROMM:
2) Scientific Rotoscoping workflow, i.e. manual markerless XROMM (Gatesy et al., 2010)
3) XROMM AutoScoper software, i.e. automated markerless XROMM (Miranda et al., 2011)
New: XROMM Undistorter, stand-alone undistortion program
We have also developed the X-ray Motion Analysis Portal (XMA Portal) for storing, viewing and managing X-ray movie data and associated metadata.
