Multimodal registration of three-dimensional maxillodental cone beam CT and photogrammetry data over time. N Bolandzadeh, W Bischof, C Flores-Mir, P Boulanger.

Date: February 2013. Source: Dentomaxillofacial Radiology, Volume 42, Issue 2. Objectives: In recent years, one of the foci of orthodontics has been on systems for the evaluation of treatment results and the tracking of tissue variations over time. This can be accomplished through analysing three-dimensional (3D) orthodontic images obtained before and after the treatments. Since […]

Three-dimensional airway evaluation in 387 subjects from one university orthodontic clinic using cone beam computed tomography. CC Chiang, MN Jeffres, A Miller, DC Hatcher.

Date: November 2012 Source: Angle Orthodontist; 82(6): pp 985-92. Abstract: Objective: To determine the linear, volumetric, and cross-sectional area measurements in a large sample of subjects seeking treatment in a university clinic of orthodontics. Materials and Methods: Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans from 387 patients were analyzed retrospectively. All scans were loaded into the 3dMDvultus […]
