Learning to Dress 3D People in Generative Clothing. Q Ma, J Yang, A Ranjan, S Pujades, G Pons-Moll, S Tang, MJ Black.

Date: June 2020. Source: 2020 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), Seattle, WA, USA. Abstract: Three-dimensional human body models are widely used in the analysis of human pose and motion. Existing models, however, are learned from minimally-clothed 3D scans and thus do not generalize to the complexity of dressed people in common…

Thesis. Outcome assessment of facial orthopedics with taping for cleft lip deformities using 3D stereophotogrammetry. Peter Mankowski.

Date: May 2020. Source: Thesis. Master of Science, The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, Craniofacial Science, The University of British Columbia. Background: Prior to operative correction of a cleft lip, presurgical orthopaedics (PSO) with facial taping is used to improve pre-maxillary and soft tissue alignment. Two commercially available taping systems, Dynacleft and 3MTM taping…

Simulation of tissue-prosthesis margin interface by using surface scanning and digital design for auricular prostheses. L McHutchion, D Aalto.

Date: April 2020 (Online). Source: The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry. Presented at seventh Biennial Congress of the Advanced Digital Technology in Head and Neck Reconstruction Foundation in Tokyo, Japan (June 22, 2019). Statement of problem: One of the most challenging aspects of auricular prosthesis design and fabrication is ensuring that the prosthesis fits the patient…

Evaluation of soft-tissue changes in young adults treated with the Forsus fatigue-resistant device. B Akan, İ Veli.

Date: April 2020. Source: American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Volume 157, Issue 4, Pages 481-489.e2. Highlights: • Forsus fatigue-resistant devices did not affect sagittal or vertical planes in postpeak patients. • Changes in maxilla and mandible were dentoalveolar only. • Significant differences in soft-tissue profiles in postpeak patients were not found. Introduction: This…

Evaluation of Changes in Nasal Projection After Surgically Assisted Rapid Maxillary Expansion With 3dMDface System. MH Büyükçavuş, Y Findik, T Baykul.

Date: April 2020. Source: The Journal of Craniofacial Surgery. DOI: 10.1097/scs.0000000000006436. Abstract: The most appropriate treatment option for maxillary expansion in adulthood due to increased cyanosis in sutures is surgically assisted maxillary expansion (SARME). Skeletal and dental changes are observed with SARME. Three-dimensional imaging techniques are gaining importance with the developing technology in evaluating the…

Lumbar posture assessment with fabric strain sensors. LQ Vu, KH Kim, LJH Schulze, SL Rajulu.

Date: March 2020. Source: Computers in Biology and Medicine, Volume 118, 103624. Abstract: Astronauts are at risk for low back pain and injury during extravehicular activity because of the deconditioning of the lumbar region and biomechanical demands associated with wearing a spacesuit. To understand and mitigate injury risks, it is necessary to study the lumbar…

Patient- and 3D morphometry-based nose outcomes after skeletofacial reconstruction. R Denadai, PY Chou, HJ Seo et al.

Date: March 2020. Source: Scientific Reports, Volume 10, Article No. 4246, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-020-61233-6. Abstract: Patient satisfaction with the shape and appearance of their nose after orthognathic surgery-based skeletofacial reconstruction is an important, but often overlooked, outcome. We assessed the nose-related outcomes through a recently developed patient-reported outcome instrument and a widely adopted 3D computer-based objective outcome…
