Introduction to XROMM

XROMM Introduction

X-Ray Reconstruction of Moving Morphology (XROMM) is an X-ray imaging and computational process that produces precise and accurate 3D movies of skeletal movement. See and the publications below for general information about XROMM.

At Brown University we have developed three main approaches to XROMM:

    Marker-based XROMM workflow (Brainerd et al., 2010)
    Scientific Rotoscoping workflow, i.e. manual markerless XROMM (Gatesy et al., 2010)​
    XROMM AutoScoper software, i.e. automated markerless XROMM (Miranda et al., 2011)​

Storing and Managing XROMM Data

We have also developed the X-ray Motion Analysis Portal XMA Portal for storing, viewing and managing X-ray movie data and associated metadata.

XROMM Wiki and XMALab Bitbucket Wiki

​XMALab is the new software for marker-based XROMM. It replaces the MATLAB XrayProject workflows. The XMALab User Manual Wiki and Downloads are on Bitbucket only.
This XROMM wiki is now obsolete for marker-based XROMM, but still has useful information for Maya.

​Tutorial for XMALab with example data is a great way to get started with XMALab.

​XROMM Short Course Lectures from June 2016

From 2010-2016 the XROMM development team at Brown University ran a week-long summer XROMM Short Course. The lectures were recorded and are available on Panopto from the 2016 Short Course.


A precompiled version of Autoscoper and more information on Autoscoper can be found here while the source code is available on Bitbucket.
