Reverse engineering is a widespread concept used in industrial applications worldwide. It involves obtaining the geometric CAD model from 3D point clouds acquired by scanning existing parts or products. Applying the concept in medical applications requires specialized competences both in the field of health and medicine as well as in CAE (Computer Aided Engineering). Most uses of reverse engineering in medicine have been focused on developing applications around in vitro and in vivo case studies. This paper presents an algorithm for implementing the reverse engineering concept for applications in the medical field. The steps required for developing reverse engineering applications in the medical field are presented alongside case studies conducted by the authors. The studies are focused on showcasing various applications as well as other possible developments in the field of health and medicine regarding in vitro applications.
