Use 3D image analysis to advance research and improve treatments

More translational research is needed to assess/improve current treatments and design new ones. Advances in medical computing can provide tools for this research. Data generated by 3D imaging techniques like CBCT or MRI are underutilized in dental research.

New algorithms for 3D dental images, disseminated via open source research tools, will help researchers learn about pathologies and assess treatment outcomes via quantitative measurements of tissue change in the craniomaxillofacial complex.
