Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction is the process of capturing the shape and appearance of real objects using computer vision and computer graphics. In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of the methods, applications and challenges of 3D reconstruction. Topics include 3D medical reconstruction and case studies; 3D reconstruction of coronary anatomy using invasive imaging modalities; recent advances in eel spectroscopic tomography; stereoscopic Schlieren/shadowgraph 3D reconstruction techniques; three-dimensional refractive index imaging of cells to study light scattering properties of cells and tissue; 3D imaging of material properties by combination of scanning probe microscope and ultramicrotome; 3D reconstruction and its application for maxillofacial surgery training; the automated systems of processing of the fragmented material at archaeological and craniology 3D reconstruction; three-dimensional reconstruction of an acinus for numerical and experimental studies; large scene reconstruction based on ToF cameras; and the structure and motion factorization of nonrigid objects.
