ABSTRACT
Given a set of labeled 3D meshes acquired from stereo imag-
ing of heads, the goal of this research is to develop a success-
ful methodology for discriminating between 22q11.2 Dele-
tion Syndrome affected individuals and the general popula-
tion and for quantifying the degree of dysmorphology of fa-
cial features. Although many approaches for such discrimi-
nation exist in the medical and computer vision literature, the
goal is to develop methods that focus on shape-based mor-
phological differences of facial features.
Index Terms-- biomedical image processing, biomedical
