In two previous works, we introduced 3D Bio-IPF, a general purpose framework to support the three-dimensional reconstruction, rendering and processing of biomedical images.

In this paper, we provide final details of the 3D Bio-IPF framework and, at the same time, we complete the description of the Implant plug-in. We used Implant to evaluate different functionalities of the whole framework, and a characteristic result chosen among these carried out is reported. Results show that the framework and the linked plug-in are very effective for dental surgery planning, implant design and positioning.

Abstract

In two previous works, we introduced 3D Bio-IPF, a general purpose framework to support the three-dimensional reconstruction, rendering and processing of biomedical images. Moreover, one of its structured components, the Implant plug-in, to model customised dental implants on a three-dimensional representation of the oral cavity derived from diagnostic images has also been presented. In this paper, we provide final details of the 3D Bio-IPF framework and, at the same time, we complete the description of the Implant plug-in. We used Implant to evaluate different functionalities of the whole framework, and a characteristic result chosen among these carried out is reported. Results show that the framework and the linked plug-in are very effective for dental surgery planning, implant design and positioning. Moreover, if integrated with a position indicator system and a numerically positionable drilling machine, the system could be employed for semi-automatic surgery.
