3D Shape Analysis of The Craniofacial Anomaly in Children With Cleft Lip and Palate

    Project Details

    Description

    This project develops methods for extraction and analysis of the shape and size of the human skull in infancy and adolescence, and is carried out at the joint 3D-Laboratory (3D-Lab) of Copenhagen University Hospital, School of Dentistry, University of Copenhagen and Informatics and Mathematical Modelling, Technical University of Denmark. The methods are applied to three-projection x-ray images, plaster casts of palatal impressions and three-dimensional scans of children with cleft lip and palate. Reliable and detailed (semi-) automatic 3D point-to-point correspondence across a population of shapes is achieved using deformable models. Statistical methods are applied in order to analyze the shape and size variation within groups of children, as well as in order to discern between different types of treatment and study temporal evolution
