every new image, the possible coordinates of landmarks are estimated, knowing the class of new image. Then a modified ASM with a multi resolution approach is applied and a principal component analysis (PCA) is incorporated to analyze each template and the mean shape is calculated. The local search to find the best match to the intensity profile is then used and every point is moved to get the best location. Finally a sub image matching procedure, based on cross correlation, is applied to pinpoint the exact location of each landmark after the template has converged. On average 24 percent of the 16 landmarks are within 1 mm of correct coordinates, 61 percent within 2 mm, and 93 percent within 5 mm, which shows a distinct improvement on other proposed methods.
