Paper Abstract

The field of biostereometrics provides us with three dimensional measurements (x,y,z coordinates) by utilizing stereopairs of either photographs or radiographs. The recent rapid development of sophisticated equipment and advanced computergraphics methods give an impetus for applications of biostereometrics to biomedical imaging. The combination of these two areas, that is, biostereometrics and advanced computergraphics, can be used to enhance our ability to make instantaneous (within 1/30 second), interactive surgical simulations and representations, and continuous, comparative, superimposed, quantitative displays. These procedures are applicable for serial observation and diagnosis and treatment planning for craniofacial anomalies, dermatologic lesions, gingival inflammatory processes and skeletal anthroplogy.
