A combinatorial method for 3D landmark-based morphometry: application to the study of coronal craniosynostosis

Emeric Gioan, Kevin Sol, Gérard Subsol
We present a new method to analyze, classify and characterize 3D landmark-based shapes. It is based on a framework provided by oriented matroid theory, that is on a combinatorial encoding of convexity properties. We apply this method to a set of skull shapes presenting various types of coronal craniosynostosis.
