Paper Abstract

Two-degrees offreedom laser scanning devices offer the advantage ofspeed in data acquisition over three-degrees offreedom devices. Data acquisition on patients especially children requires speed in data gathering instantaneous verification ofdata integrity and more than two degrees offreedom to adequately describe morphology. A technique to generate a pseudo-third degree of freedom scan will be presented. An additional benefit of the technique is the ability to compare data acquired at different times.
