We describe an approach toward improved classification of fractures in the vicinity of ankle joints using image-specific image enhancement and 3D modeling. The enhancement approach is based on the development of a set of linear features from x-ray images. The 3D models of fractures are used to determine the x-ray image representation from a fractured surface. These models are then used in reverse to find surface parameters that are most consistent with the 2D fracture representations.
