I am looking for professionally used representation of female chest (I know how it sounds ;). Generally - a model comprehensive enough to effectively represent human chest, with focus on breasts.

The data it needs to represent are at least: width, height, depth, distance between cardinal points, so on. I do know there's a questionnaire for patients willing to undergo an implant operation - I'm looking around for something similiar. Optimally the model would be directed towards computer represenation.

With that in mind, I've checked some computer implementations:

  • SOFA (seems promising, but somewhat generic),
  • MakeHuman (nice customization, but again, pretty general).

I do not know whether this question is in scope of this site. If it's too specific, then consider the simplified: what are the methods used to describe female chests OR what would be a good source of information about these methods?

    $\begingroup$ What is the purpose for (ostensibly) a breast model? These are commonly used in radiotherapy models but I am not familiar enough to point you to a data source. $\endgroup$ – user560 May 28 '14 at 20:14

    $\begingroup$ @leonardo, for exactly that - to export it to DICOM for radiotherapists. $\endgroup$ – hauron May 28 '14 at 20:47
