Soft tissue coverage on the segmentation accuracy of the 3D surface-rendered model from cone-beam CT

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of soft tissue presence on the segmentation accuracy of the 3D hard tissue models from cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). Seven pairs of CBCT Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM) datasets, containing data of human cadaver heads and their respective dry skulls, were used. The effect of… CONTINUE READING
