3D dental computer-based patient record
This project is developing a 3D-based patient record for general dentistry.
To date, a multidisciplinary research team with expertise in human computer interaction, dental informatics and computer science has conducted a 14-week project to develop and evaluate a proof of concept for a 3-D
dental record. The project implemented a prototypical patient record built around a 3-D model of a patient’s maxillofacial structures. Novel features include automatic retrieval of images and radiographs; a flexible view of teeth, soft tissue and bone; access to historical patient data through a timeline; and the ability to focus on a single tooth. We are currently developing the prototype further in order to study its effect on clinical decision-making.
The last version of the executable project is at http://di.dental.pitt.edu/3dProject/3dDental-9.zip. This version will only run on slightly older versions of Flash Player. If someone could update the code to work with current platforms, that would be great.
