Image/tracing manager

Visual overview (with image thumbnails) and management of a patient’s images, tracings, treatment plans, and superimpositions, organized in Examinations.

Image calibration

  • Real world calibration, using the system ruler in the x-ray image
  • Enter the resolution (mm/pixel) of the x-ray detector
  • Enter the DPI (dots per inch) resolution of a flatbed image scanner (for scanned x-ray film)
  • Compensation for x-ray enlargement factors

Image functions

    • Enlarge/reduce in steps
    • Enlarge/reduce continuously
  • Brightness and contrast
    • Adjust brightness and contrast
    • Optimise brightness and contrast in a specific image area
  • Invert an image
  • Rotate an image 90°/180°, flip up side down, or mirror left/right
  • Free image rotation

Tracing

  • Place landmarks
    • A guided process with visual placement guide for landmarks
    • Automatic positioning of the mouse cursor
    • Place only the landmarks necessary for the chosen analysis
    • Adjust the position of landmarks
    • Place/adjust landmarks with high precision
  • Automatic placement of incisors
  • Place teeth using ready-made templates
  • Adjust the position, size and slope of teeth
  • Draw hard tissue (maxilla, mandible, and other anatomical structures) using ready-made templates
  • Adjust the hard tissue structures
  • Draw the soft tissue profile line using a template and automatic structure recognition
  • Adjust the soft tissue profile line
  • Trace on either right or left cephalograms
  • Undo any actions easily, to correct for user mistakes

Cephalometric analysis

  • Predefined standard analyses
    • lateral analyses
    • frontal (PA) analyses
    • study model analyses
  • Modify and custom-design your own analyses
  • Adjust norm intervals for selected measurements
  • Build your own analyses from a measurement library
  • Flexible graphic presentation of measurements, values, and cephalometric lines
  • Harmony box by Segner/Hasund

Output

  • Print images, tracings, analysis results, and combined reports
  • Export images to image files
  • Save analysis results to text files
  • Copy images, tracings, and analysis results to the Windows clipboard
  • Export Facad patients to e.g. a memory stick

Treatment planning and VTO

  • Planned movement and rotation of teeth, maxilla, and mandible – with high precision, interactively or by entering numeric movement values
  • Immediate numeric presentation of planned movement
  • Immediate soft tissue prediction
  • Simulate effects from automatic rotation of the mandible
  • Split hard tissue segments
  • Simulate the use of distractors
  • Predicted photo as a result from treatment planning
  • Flexible model for soft tissue movements
  • Multiple planning suggestions

Superimposition

  • Superimpose a lateral x-ray with a profile photo with see-through effect
  • Superimpose two x-ray images with see-through effect
  • Superimpose 2-5 tracings simultaneously
  • Present analysis values from all superimposed tracings simultaneously
  • Superimpose tracings before/during/after treatment
  • Superimpose tracings during growth
  • Superimpose a treatment plan with a post-treatment tracing, i.e. compare a treatment plan with the actual result
  • Measure differences (distances) between tracings in a superimposition
  • Several methods for alignment of included tracings:
    • Fixate tracings at a reference marker, rotation by a reference line
    • Best match using 2 or more reference markers
    • Manual alignment, use anatomical structures
    • Perform the ”Structural Method” by prof. Arne Björk (with implant lines)
