The Method of Volumetric Visualization of Bone Density

, , , , ,

The work aimed to optimize the technique of spatial digital analysis of bone density For the experiment, spiral computed tomography of the facial skeleton of 20 patients aged 10 to 22 years with maxillofacial pathology was performed. Spiral computed tomography technique (CT): the plane of the CT slice is parallel to the plane of the Frankfurt horizontal or the plane of the bite. The proposed technique makes it possible to visualize and, depending on the density, divide the bone tissue within each scan into a certain range of spectra, which makes it possible to better identify the zones with the highest and lowest density of bone tissue. The possibility of selecting a separate bone layer with a certain density range allows its reconstruction and tracing of its boundaries on a computer volumetric model. This technique can be successfully used in maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, periodontics, and implantology to determine the condition of the bone tissue of the jaws to plan therapeutic measures.
