Title (EN) AUTOMATIC SPATIAL ADJUSTMENT OF A PAN-ORAL X-RAY SOURCE IN RESPONSE TO THE ACTUAL DENTITION OF A PATIENT
(FR) RÉGLAGE SPATIAL AUTOMATIQUE D'UNE SOURCE DE RAYONS X PANORAMIQUE ORALE EN RÉPONSE À LA DENTITION RÉELLE D'UN PATIENT
Abstract:
(EN) A system (100), method (200), and computer program product for performing pan-oral imaging. A plurality of data points (600) are generated which are representative of spatial positions of an actual dentition (400) of a patient with respect to a defined spatial coordinate system (120). A fitted curve (700) through at least a portion of the spatial positions of the dentition (400) is computed using the plurality of data points (600). A pan-oral image acquisition trajectory (800) is then computed with respect to a defined spatial coordinate system (120) using the fitted curve (700). A pan-oral image of the dentition is then acquired along the pan-oral image acquisition trajectory (800).
(FR) L'invention concerne un système (100), un procédé (200) et un produit-programme informatique pour réaliser une imagerie panoramique orale. Une pluralité de points de données (600) est générée qui est représentative des positions spatiales d'une dentition réelle (400) d'un patient par rapport à un système défini de coordonnées spatiales (120). Une courbe adaptée (700) sur au moins une partie des positions spatiales de la dentition (400) est calculée à l'aide de la pluralité de points de données (600). Une trajectoire d'acquisition d'image panoramique orale (800) est ensuite calculée par rapport à un système défini de coordonnées spatiales (120) à l'aide de la courbe adaptée (700). Une image panoramique orale de la dentition est alors acquise le long de la trajectoire d'acquisition d'image panoramique orale (800).
