Craniomaxillofacial Reconstruction Based on 3D Modeling
Current treatment planning and reconstruction of craniofacial trauma has been advanced greatly due to the increase in the use of software to convert medical image files in the form of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) to 3D reconstructions and ultimately files which can be converted for fabrication of medical models and surgical guides using additive or subtractive manufacturing technologies. In addition, advances in photogrammetry systems allow for capture of the surface of the head and neck using camera systems that can be registered to medical images to help in the surgical planning for head and neck reconstructions.
