Nowadays cranio-maxillofacial surgery has been remarkably evaluating and heavily adopting software-based technological innovations. This is associated with the complex 3-dimensional anatomy of the face and visualization of outcome of surgery and preoperative planning procedures.
To be able to visualize the required part a 3D surface reconstructions or volume renderings of anatomical structures generated by image-based segmentation methods is used.
Modeling based on CT images
Our team uses these image data from computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET/CT) or magnet resonance imaging (MRI) scans to design and create a digital model
