The possibility to describe mathematically the body surfaces could improve diagnosis and objective evaluation of deformities, the follow up of progressive diseases and could represent a useful tool for other medical sectors as prosthetic and plastic surgery as well as for industrial applications where a real shape needs to be digitized and analyzed or modified mathematically. The approach here presented is based on the acquisition of a surface scanned by a laser beam. The 3D coordinates of the spot generated on the surface by the beam are obtained by an automatic image analyzer (ELITE system), originally developed for human motion analysis. The 3D coordinates are obtained by stereo-photogrammetry starting from at least two different view of the subject. A software package for graphic representation of the obtained surfaces has been developed and some preliminary results about some body shapes will be presented.
