This chapter introduces statistical shape- and appearance models and their biomedical applications. Three- and four-dimensional extension of these models are the main focus. Approaches leading to automated landmark definition are introduced and discussed. The applicability is underlined by presenting practical examples of 3D medical image segmentation.
