Paper Abstract

For preoperative planning of dental implantations pictorial representations are required that permit to evaluate the size of teeth holes, size and structure of jaw bones, position of the mandibular channel and of the alveolar nerve. Since normal transaxial. CT images do not meet these requirements special secondary reconstructions adapted to jaw anatomy are necessary: -panoramic secondary cuts The cut line follows jaw curvature and represents a similar view as orthopantomographic pictures. (see Fig.1) -oblique secondary cuts That are plane cuts perpendicular to the panoramic cut line. (see Fig.2)
