Although it is well known that human bone tissues have obvious orthotropic material properties, most works in the physical modeling field adopted oversimplified isotropic or approximated transversely isotropic elasticity due to the simplicity. This paper presents a convenient methodology based on harmonic fields, to construct volumetric finite element mesh(More)
This paper presents an intuitive nose surgery planning and simulation system, using 3D laser scan image and lateral X-ray image, to provide high quality prediction of the postoperative appearance, and design the patient specific prosthesis model automatically. After initial registration, the internal surface of soft tissue at the nose region was generated(More)
The accurate tooth partition of dental mesh is a crucial step in computer-aided orthodontics. However, tooth boundary identification is not a trivial task for tooth partition, since different shapes and their arrangements vary substantially among common clinical cases. Though curvature field is traditionally used for identifying boundaries, it is normally(More)
The objective of this investigation is to analyze the influence of trabecular microstructure modeling on the biomechanical distribution of the implant-bone interface. Two three-dimensional finite element mandible models, one with trabecular microstructure (a refined model) and one with macrostructure (a simplified model), were built. The values of(More)
An important preprocess in computer-aided orthodontics is to segment teeth from the dental models accurately, which should involve manual interactions as few as possible. But fully automatic partition of all teeth is not a trivial task, since teeth occur in different shapes and their arrangements vary substantially from one individual to another. The(More)
This study aimed to elucidate the impact of PTEN single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) on clinical outcomes for advanced lung adenocarcinoma (LAC) patients treated with platinum-based chemotherapy. Three functional SNPs (rs11202607 G>A, rs701848 A>G, and rs11202592 G>C) of PTEN gene were genotyped by using DNA from blood samples of 618 advanced LAC patients,(More)
Traditional static topic models mainly focus on the statistical correlation between words, but ignore the sentiment tendency and the temporal properties which may have great effects on topic detection results. This paper proposed an LDA-based dynamic sentiment-topic (DST) model, which could not only detect and track topics but could also analyse the shift(More)
OBJECTIVE The study was to investigate the impact of orthotropic material on the biomechanics of dental implant, based on a detailed mandible with high geometric and mechanical similarity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Multiple data sources were used to elaborate detailed biological structures and implant CAD models. In addition, an extended orthotropic material(More)
