Application of Volumetric Stereoanimation in Maxillofacial Surgery
The work is devoted to the application of previously developed algorithms and methods of stereo imaging in the field of maxillofacial surgery. Construction of stereo images can be useful for solving the problem of visual aids in medicine. The work is based on the developed algorithms and software tools for presenting 3D objects in stereo mode on modern autostereoscopic monitors. Test examples of 3D volumetric animations of the results of real CT scans of patients are constructed and presented as illustrations. A similar approach can be used for virtual volumetric 3D visualization of human organs in various fields of medicine. Practical cooperation of medical workers and developers of methods of stereo animation on autostereoscopic monitors on example of practical tasks allows to develop new approaches, necessary for specialists. For medical workers creation of stereopresentation base helps to identify patients' pathologies, to establish communication with the patient by means of visual volumetric representations, to establish communication between medical specialists. The dissemination of such stereoscopic images in various fields is extremely important. Such visual representations help to move the processes of patient analysis, data processing to a new, higher level.
