The use of simulator systems for surgical planning and training is growing as the systems become more advanced. One important feature of these systems is the possibility to work on real patient data. This paper presents a method for generating patient-specific models of the femoral bone and the pelvis to be used in a hip surgery simulator. The bones are segmented from volumetric CT data using the Morphon method , where a prototype pattern is iteratively morphed to fit the corresponding structure in the input data.
