9th Annual William H. Bell Lectureship: Overcoming Obstacles in Orthognathic Surgery
Three-dimensional virtual planning improves the outcomes of orthognathic surgery, but several barriers have prevented full implementation. Successful implementation requires
- an understanding of computer tomography, image processing, and three-dimensional geometry,
- the use well-tested software and planning protocols, and (3) cost-control.
In this seminar, attendees will learn the fundamentals of three-dimensional medical imaging, how to diagnose facial deformities using advanced morphometric tools, and how to efficiently simulate treatment in a 3D virtual environment. Additionally, attendees will learn the latest treatment planning protocols and how to reduce treatment cost.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontist, plastic surgeons, otolaryngologist, residents/fellows, researchers, nurses, and technicians involved with or interested in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to:
- Describe the fundamentals of three-dimensional imaging
- Assess and quantify jaw deformities correctly
- Plan orthognathic surgeries efficiently and effectively
