Parallel Mesh Generation for Medical Image Computing


Nikos Chrisochoides


Invited talk in SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing, Publisher SIAM, March, 2008




Parallel mesh generation codes based on known sequential mesh generation methods. Given that it takes very long time to develop the software infrastructure for sequential industrial strength mesh generation libraries, it is clear that traditional parallelization approaches deliver technology that is outdated. This problem becomes more serious if one considers that improvements of sequential codes in terms of quality, speed, and functionality are open ended. In this talk we present a COTS (commercial of-the-shelf) based approach to parallel mesh generation for addressing this serious problem. We will present our experience from different parallel meshing methods and in addition we will present their extensions to meet medical image computing requirements like patient/image specific input and conformity of the mesh between different tissues.
