Abstract: Surface reconstruction from 3D medical images is fundamental for bio-medical applications. Nevertheless, the generation of valid geometric surfaces is a difficult task due to the complexity of the structures necessary to represent the human body. In this paper, we describe the main strategies concerning surface reconstruction and planar contour extraction algorithms. In addition, we propose a new approach to surface reconstruction from medical images. Our approach is divided into two main parts. In the first part, contour extraction is performed using a hierarchical spatial decomposition. In the second part, these contours can be triangulated using a table of patterns in order to obtain geometrically valid surfaces.
