Abstract. This work presents an approach towards reconstructing lig-
ament and tendon attachment sites from 3D medical image data. We
apply statistical shape models with an additional free form step to re-
construct the anatomical shape of the distal femur from CT data. After
the shape fitting process the locations of ligament attachment sites, which
are incorporated in the geometric model, are extracted and their posi-
tions optimized via an image based approach. To show the potential of
our method we manually extracted the surface of 11 distal femora and
their corresponding ligament attachment sites in clinical CT data and
