Robust 3D scale-rotational-translational invariant shape-contexts are presented to compute plausible landmarks and applied to the generation of an atlas of the knee. A mean femoral shape as well as a mean cartilage thickness map were succesfully generated. Results suggest that the technique could be easily applicable to the creation of other mean shapes as well as mean maps of different tissue properties.
