Abstract

A new visual approach to the surface shape analysis and classification of 3D facial images is presented. It aims to allow the users to visually explore the natural patterns and geometric features of 3D facial scans to provide decision-making information for face classification which can be used for the diagnosis of diseases that exhibit facial characteristics. Using surface feature analysis under a digital geometry analysis framework, we employ an interactive feature visualization technique that allows interactive definition, modification and exploration of facial features to provide the best discriminatory power for a given classification problem. OpenGL based surface shading and interactive lighting are employed to generate visual maps of discriminatory features to visually represent the salient differences between labeled classes. This technique will be applied to a medical diagnosis application for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) which is known to exhibit certain facial patterns.
