A computer-assisted three-dimensional virtual osteotomy system for orthognathic surgery (CAVOS) is presented. The virtual reality workbench is used for surgical planning. The surgeon immerses in a virtual reality environment with stereo eyewear, holds a virtual "scalpel" (3D Mouse) and operates on a "real" patient (3D visualization) to obtain pre-surgical(More)
Complex maxillofacial malformations continue to present challenges in analysis and correction beyond modern technology. The purpose of this paper is to present a virtual reality workbench for surgeons to perform virtual orthognathic surgical planning and soft-tissue prediction in three dimensions. A resulting surgical planning system, i.e.,(More)
Orthognathic surgery corrects a wide range of minor and major facial and jaw irregularities. This surgery will improve the patients’ ability to chew, speak and breathe. In many cases, a better appearance will also result. With the recent advances in virtual reality (VR) and three-dimensional (3D) medical imaging technology, orthognathic surgery simulations(More)
