Abstract--Anatomical models of pregnant women are used in
several applications, such as numerical dosimetry, to assess the po-
tential effects of electromagnetic fields on biological tissues, or med-
ical simulation. Recent advances in medical imaging have enabled
the generation of realistic and detailed models of human beings.
The construction of pregnant woman models remains a complex
task, since it is not possible to acquire whole-body images. Only few
models have been developed up to now, and they all present some
limitations regarding the representation of anatomical variability
of the fetus shape and position over the entire gestation. This paper
describes a complete methodology that intends to automate each
step of the construction of pregnant women models. The proposed
approach relies on the segmentation of 3-D ultrasonic and 3-D mag-
