3D-Cinematic rendering for dental and maxillofacial imaging


Stadlinger, Bernd; Valdec, Silvio; Wacht, Lorenz; Essig, Harald; Winklhofer, Sebastian (2020). 3D-Cinematic rendering for dental and maxillofacial imaging. Dentomaxillofacial Radiology, 49(1):20190249.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES
Aim of this technical note is to show the applicability of cinematic rendering (CR) for a photorealistic 3-dimensional (3D) visualization of maxillofacial structures. The focus is on maxillofacial hard tissue pathologies.
METHODS
High density maxillofacial pathologies were selected in which CR is applicable. Data from both, computed tomography (CT) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) were postprocessed using a prototype CR software.
RESULTS
CR 3D postprocessing of CT and CBCT imaging data is applicable on high density structures and pathologies such as bones, teeth, and tissue calcifications. Image reconstruction allows for a detailed visualization of surface structures, their plasticity, and 3D configuration.
CONCLUSIONS
CR allows for the generation of photorealistic 3D reconstructions of high density structures and pathologies. Potential applications for maxillofacial bone and tooth imaging are given and examples for CT and CBCT images are displayed.
