Cone Beam Computed Tomography has become quite popular in craniofacial imaging. Tools for analyzing the volumetric data however have not caught up with the recent industry demands. Most of the analysis in 3D is primarily based on techniques used in 2D format, thus adding some limitations to the post diagnostic capabilities of the imaging modality. We have developed a technique to measure the geometry of the CBCT volumes and find the changes in the facial structures after the surgery, all in a technically non-intensive and reproducible way.
