Rapid prototyping is becoming a fast-growing and valuable technique for physical models in case of congenital anomalies. Manufacturing models are generally built from three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound, computed tomography, and fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan data. Physical prototype has demonstrated to be clinically of value in case of complex(More)

OBJECTIVE Facial-type-associated variations in diagnostic features have several implications in orthodontics. For example, in hyperdivergent craniofacial types, growth imbalances are compensated by displacement of the condyle. When diagnosis and treatment planning involves centric relation (CR), detailed knowledge of the condylar position is desirable. The(More)

The goal of this work is to describe the architecture of an integrated environment for specifying and simulating communication protocols , with timing constraints. The system, under development, is based on the CAD-Estelle toolset, which has been used in many academic works. In the proposed environment, all design steps can be done from the Extended Finite(More)
