Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) scanning of human skin for 3D medical visualisation and printing does not often produce the desired results due to a number of factors including the specularity of human skin, difficulties in scanning fine structures such as hair, and the capabilities of the scanning technologies utilised. Some additional 3D modelling may be required to make the surfaces more suitable for use in the production of anatomical and medical teaching resources, computerized facial depiction, and design of bespoke prostheses. 3D scanned surfaces can be enhanced through digital sculpting and embossing of high-resolution photographs of human skin.
