Stradview was created from Stradwin, which has been developed over a number of years and the various algorithms incorporated into the software have been developed over many more. Hence there is no single publication which describes all the available features. If you use Stradview as part of your research, please cite the web address for the software, which is:

You should also cite a paper or papers appropriate to the features you are using.

Volume measurement and creating 3D surface models

[1] describes the technique for interpolating between cross-sections drawn on the original non-parallel ultrasound images. [2] describes the algorithm for turning these cross-sections into a 3D triangle-based model. [3] describes the algorithm used to calculate the volume of segmented objects in Stradview.

Cortical bone mapping from CT data

Stradview implements the cortical bone mapping techniques described in [1-5], which are also the subject of a patent application [6]. [7-10] describe our first clinical applications of the technique.
