|Keywords||Craniofacial bone deformity / Cephalomatric radiograph / 3D-CT / 3D-Skeletogram / Simulation of surgical operation / Life size skeletal model / NC manufacture / LASER Lithography|
Morphological analysis of the craniofacial bone deformity has been performed by cephalometric radiography, but it was difficult to analyze three dimensional form on two dimensional image.
Because of the remarkable progress of the computer technology, three dimensional computer tomography (3DCT) has become useful in this field. This new appliance brought us the ability to compare and analyze the complicated deformity much better than before, so we developed the simple analyzing system (3D Skeletogram) based upon it.
But that was not sufficient since the information on the CRT was just the image after all. In order to fill the gap between this image and the real shape, we felt the necessity of a life size (real size) skeletal model of the patient. So as the seco13EA\ : nd step of this study, we tried to fabricate next four kinds of models using CT data and etc.
(〕SY.encircled1.〔) model fabrication with layring method
a. by Hand work
b. by 2-dimensional NC machine
c. by LASER Lithography
(〕SY.encircled2.〔) mode fabrication with carving method
d. by 3-dimensional NC machine
Considering the quality and the cost of each model, we concluded that LASER Lithography will be the most hopeful.
