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.
See [xromm.org|http://www.xromm.org] for more information.
There are seven steps in the marker-based XROMM workflow:
1) Implant radiopaque bone markers
2) Record biplanar x-ray videos of movement
- For Brown Users: Getting trained and certified to use x-ray machines and Operating C-arm x-ray machines during data collection
3) Analyze x-ray videos to extract XYZ coordinates of radiopaque markers
- Digitizing x-ray movies using the MATLAB XrayProject.mat procedure. (MATLAB scripts written by Ty Hedrick and Dave Baier, and modified and updated by Loretta Reiss)
4) Create 3D polygonal bone surface models
- Creating 3D models from CT scans using Amira software
- Creating 3D models with Microscan Laser Scanner
5) Measure XYZ coordinates of markers relative to polygonal bone models
- Instructions for this step are available if you are working with models from CT scans. Laser scan procedures are different and instructions are not yet available.
- For CT models, this step is done in Maya using the XROMM Maya Tools
