Title: METHOD FOR CEPHALOMETRIC ANALYSIS
Abstract:
A method for 3-D cephalometric analysis of a patient, executed at least in part on a computer processor, displays reconstructed volume image data from a computed tomographic scan of a patient's head from at least a first 2-D view and accepts an operator instruction that positions and displays at least one reference mark on the at least the first displayed 2-D view. One or more dentition elements within the mouth of the patient are segmented and cephalometric parameters for the patient computed and displayed according to data from the at least one reference mark and the one or more segmented dentition elements. Using the computed cephalometric parameters, one or more results indicative of maxillofacial asymmetry are computed and a graphical or text display energized to show the computed results indicative of asymmetry.
