This study introduces a regional-surface-based registration without markers for integration of laser-scanned dental images into maxillofacial cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images. The method just needs to manually select three similar areas without artifact on the digital dental image and CBCT image, and then the process is automatically complete the fusion (superimposition) of maxillofacial model and the digital dental model. Then the differences such as mean error and root-mean-square… CONTINUE READING
