Date: March 2014. Source: The Angle Orthodontist (Online). Objective: To investigate the perception of facial asymmetry in young adults to identify the amounts of chin asymmetry that can be regarded as normal and may benefit from correction. Materials and Methods: Three-dimensional (3D) images of 56 individuals of mixed ethnicity were obtained and used to produce…

Three-Dimensional Stereophotogrammetry: A Novel Method in Volumetric Measurement of Infantile Hemangioma. DJJ Hermans, TJJ Maal, SJ Bergé, CJM Vleuten.

Date: January 2014. Source: Pediatric Dermatology. Volume 31, Issue 1, pp 118-122. Abstract: Accurate and objective measurement of volume changes in infantile hemangiomas (IHs) is essential in routine clinical practice and clinical studies, particularly in the changing therapeutic landscape after the discovery of propranolol. Several bedside techniques for volume measurement have been described in the…

Comparison of facial morphologies between adult Chinese and Houstonian Caucasian populations using three-dimensional imaging. J Wirthlin, CH Kau, JD English, F Pan, H Zhou.

Date: Sep 2013 Source: International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 42(9):1100-7. Abstract: The objective of this study was to compare the facial morphologies of an adult Chinese population to a Houstonian white population. Three-dimensional (3D) images were acquired via a commercially available stereophotogrammetric camera system, 3dMDface™. Using the system, 100 subjects from a Houstonian…

Date: Aug 2013. Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 71(8):1406-14. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to measure the accuracy of 3D computer simulation of soft tissue changes after orthognathic surgery. Materials and Methods: Consecutive patients who underwent orthognathic surgery were studied by photogrammetric facial scanning and cone-beam computed tomography before and after…

Cardiff Scientists and 3dMD Enter a New Dimension in 3D/4D Facial Imaging.

Anaheim, California (23-July-13): A team of Cardiff University clinicians and computer scientists can, for the first time, carry out facial movement research and transform the way patients needing facial surgery are assessed and monitored thanks to a new state-of-the-art 3D surface motion imaging system from 3dMD (3dMD exhibiting at #SIGGRAPH2013 Booth 226). Working alongside the…

Three-dimensional reproducibility of natural head position. DW Weber, DW Fallis, MD Packerc.

Date: May 2013 Source: American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Volume 143, Issue 5, pp 738-744. Introduction: Although natural head position has proven to be reliable in the sagittal plane, with an increasing interest in 3-dimensional craniofacial analysis, a determination of its reproducibility in the coronal and axial planes is essential. This study was…

Unilateral Condylar Hyperplasia: A 3-Dimensional Quantification of Asymmetry. TJ Verhoeven, JW Nolte, TJJ Maal, SJ Bergé, AG Becking.

Date: March 2013. Source: PLoS ONE.org. Purpose: Objective quantifications of facial asymmetry in patients with Unilateral Condylar Hyperplasia (UCH) have not yet been described in literature.
