    Notes: Abstract The artificial activation of the heart modifies the mechanics of contraction and relaxation. While only little basic research has been addressed to this question, clinical observations showed that for hypertrophic as well as dilated cardiomyopathies appropriate pacing techniques can be useful. Pacing can influence the activation sequence. The spread out from a single site is slow, and so hypercontractility deminshed. With the use of multiple electrodes, two atrial and/or two ventricular, conduction delays in the atria or ventricles can be eliminated. Synchronisation of the cardiac activation has an anti-arrhythmic and positiv inotropic effect. This may lead to new indications for pacemakers or better to be named cardiac synchronisers.

    Notes: Abstract This paper describes a technique for the automatic adaptation of a canonical facial model to data obtained by a 3D laser scanner. The facial model is a B-spline surface with 13×16 control points. We introduce a technique by which this canonical model is fit to the scanned data and that takes into consideration the requirements for the animation of facial expressions. The animation of facial expressions is based on the facial action coding system (FACS). Using B-splines in combination with FACS, we automatically create the impression of a moving skin. To increase the realism of the animation we map textural information onto the B-spline surface.

    Description / Table of Contents: Background In addition to standard X-rays, photographic documentation, cephalometric and model analysis, a computer-aided, three-dimensional (3D) simulation system has been developed in close cooperation with the Institute of Communications of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. With this simulation system a photorealistic prediction of the expected soft tissue changes can be made. Prerequisites are a 3D reconstruction of the facial skeleton and a 3D laser scan of the face. After data reduction, the two data sets can be matched. Cutting planes enable the transposition of bony segments. The laser scan of the facial surface is combined with the underlying bone via a five-layered soft tissue model to convert bone movements on the soft tissue cover realistically. Conclusion Further research is necessary to replace the virtual subcutaneous soft tissue model by correct, topographic tissue anatomy.
    Notes: Hintergrund Im Rahmen eines Sonderforschungsbereichs der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (SFB 603) wurde in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Lehrstuhl für Nachrichtentechnik der Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg ein computergestütztes Simulationssystem zur dreidimensionalen, fotorealistischen Vorhersage von Weichgewebeveränderungen nach orthognathen Eingriffen entwickelt. Voraussetzung sind 3D-CT-Datensätze des Gesichtsschädels sowie eine ebenfalls dreidimensionale Laserabtastung der Gesichtsoberfläche. Beide Datensätze können nach Datenreduktion über ein mathematisches Verfahren so miteinander verknüpft werden, dass mit Hilfe so genannter “cutting planes” Verlagerungen von Knochensegmenten auf das bedeckende Weichgewebe realitätsnah übertragen werden können. Schlussfolgerung Es bedarf weiterer Forschungsanstrengungen, um auch die subkutanen Weichgewebelagen so in das Simulationsmodell zu integrieren, dass noch bestehende Abweichungen korrigiert werden können.
