We present technologies and ideas, developed from the JFIT 'Active Stereo Probe Project', which are applicable to problems within medical measurement and monitoring. Two related areas are considered. The first concerns patient body surface modelling. During the project two state-of-the-art non-contact surface measurement techniques have been developed which are applicable to medical situations requiring dense and accurate body surface modelling. Such applications include, for example, prosthetic appliance fabrication, presurgical planning and non-invasive deformity analysis. The second is concerned with overlay projection. Using this enabling technology the information content of a scene can be enhanced as an aid to medical personnel. Results and illustrative applications of the newly developed technology are presented.
