Optimized 3-D CT scan protocol for longitudinal morphological estimation in craniofacial surgery.

Abstract

Frequent three-dimensional computed tomography scanning may cause deterioration of the lenses of the eye, which are susceptible to x-rays. The authors performed an experimental study using a phantom head to establish an optimized three-dimensional computed tomography scan protocol for longitudinal morphological estimation in craniofacial surgery.
