The authors present a computer vision technique for the acquisition and processing of 3-D images of the profile of wax dental imprints in the automation of diagnosis in orthodontics. The acquisition of the 3-D images is based on the absorption of light by a dispersive medium and uses standard CCD (charge coupled device) cameras. The profiles of both sides of the imprint are acquired simultaneously. The 3-D image of each side of the imprint is segmented by nonlinear filtering of the 3-D data… CONTINUE READING
