Background: In plastic and reconstructive craniofacial surgery, careful preoperative planning is essential. In complex cases of craniofacial synostosis, rapid prototyping models are used to simulate the surgery and reduce operating time. Recently, 3-D CT model surgery has been introduced for presurgical planning and prediction of the postoperative result. Objective: For simulation of craniofacial surgery a computer-based system was developed that allows visualization and manipulation of CT-data… CONTINUE READING
