In medical diagnosis nowadays 3D medical model of human organ is created based on 2D image such as CT and MRI because 3D model includes and reflects more information than 2D image. 3D medical model has many utilities, including surgery plan design and simulation, defect area inspection, personalized implant design and physical model fabrication. Also the drawback of overlapping, found in 2D images is overcame by 3D modeling (usually in images of ribcage). First, an appropriate segmentation method is applied and the segmentation result is used as the input of Marching Cubes to generate accurate isosurfaces and 3D modeling. For better view from different angle volume rotation method is then applied at last.
