Reassembly of fractured objects using surface signature
As 3D object acquisition technology has improved, research has been actively conducted on the virtual reassembly of broken 3D objects. However, because fractured surfaces are bumpy and complicated,Expand

Dimension Reduction of Solid Models by Mid-Surface Generation
Recently, feature-based solid modeling systems have been widely used in product design. However, for engineering analysis of a product model, an abstracted CAD model composed of mid-surfaces isExpand

Three-dimensional orbital wall modeling using paranasal sinus segmentation.
PURPOSE Three-dimensional orbital wall modeling is a time-consuming process because of the presence of pseudoforamina. We developed an automated three-dimensional modeling software to characterizeExpand

Volume Data Inspection Tools for Industrial Computed Tomography
Industrial computed tomography (CT) has opened a new paradigm in product inspection fields. In contrary to other 3D inspection devices, industrial CT systems can completely digitize the interior asExpand

Automated maxillofacial reconstruction software: development and evaluation
ABSTRACTIn this paper, we propose a surgical planning system to automate the preoperative planning for mandibular reconstruction with a fibula free flap. We designed surgical guides with user-frien...
A Simplification Method for Feature-based Solid Models
This paper describes a new practical simplification method for feature-based solid models. In this approach, a solid model created using feature modeling operations is first simplified by theExpand
Automatic Detection of Inferior Alveolar Nerve Canal from Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Images for Dental Surgery Planning
The inferior alveolar nerve canal is an important nerve canal in the jaw bone, and any damage to this canal can cause pain or fatal complications. Since such damage can be caused by a wrong surgicalExpand

A Novel Noninvasive Patient-Specific Navigation Method for Orbital Reconstructive Surgery: A Phantom Study Using Patient Data
Background: The correction of orbital deformities is an ongoing challenge in maxillofacial surgery. Computer-assisted navigation can improve surgical outcomes. However, conventional registrationExpand
