Data used to create SSM
This package contains the processed data used to create the Knee Bone and Cartilage thickness SSM. The data has been prepared according to the paper: Cartilage thickness is coupled to bone shape in healthy knees and varies with sex.
Please note that all femurs consist of 50031 points, patella consist of 10049 points, and tibia consist of 49801 points.
In order to create the SSM, a final registration/alignment should be applied to the data before applying your unsupervised machine learning method such as principal component analysis (PCA).
Please note cartilage thicknesses provided correspond to the thickness at the subchondral nodes provided in the cartilage growing patch files.
