Paper Abstract

It is generally believed that medical 3D imaging augmented by computer graphics is useful in pre-operative surgical planning. Most of the existing hardware and software systems cater to only the requirements of visualizing 3D structures. This is perhaps adequate to meet the needs of pre-operative examination. However, simulation of complex osteotomy and corrective reconstruction procedures requires advanced tools for manipulating and quantitating 3D structures. This paper examines, with examples from craniofacial surgery, what new tools are needed, and outlines approaches to realize some of them.
