Dolphin Imaging

  1. 1. Dolphin Imaging 11 s TM • Ceph Tracing • Treatmen ngPlu t Imagi Simula tion tem s • A nyw r Sy h e re D o • 3D • L ette 3D The Dolphin 3D software module is a powerful tool that makes processing 3D data extremely easy, enabling dental specialists from a wide variety of disciplines to accurately diagnose and plan treatment. Dolphin 3D allows visualization and analysis of craniofacial anatomy from data produced by cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), MRI, medical CT and 3D facial camera systems. Dolphin Imaging software is designed specifically for dental clinicians and trained assisting staff. Results produced by Dolphin’s diagnostic and treatment planning tools are dependent on the interpretation of Ye a r s trained and licensed practitioners. of Excellence © 2009 Dolphin Imaging & Management Solutions
  2. 2. Dolphin Imaging 11 product features D olphin 3D software is already widely used by research/teaching institutes and private practices worldwide. It features tools for onscreen manipulation and analysis of volumetric datasets: Images are easily oriented and rotated, and tissue density thresholds can be adjusted for detailed views of craniofacial anatomy. Measurements and digitization can be performed in both 3D and traditional 2D. Features • Import from a variety of 3D files • High-quality, fast 3D rendering • Easily detect impacted teeth • Analyze, visualize and measure airway • Comprehensive cross sections with Multiple Planar View (MPV) • Precise volume orientation • 3D nerve marking • TMJ analysis • Create stunning, accurate cephalometric and panoramic radiographs • Establish 3D/2D measurements • Create movies • Design automated image layouts • Images export to other applications, including PowerPoint, Word, etc. • Images easily saved into Dolphin patient file • Export to standard file formats and Windows Clipboard • Fully embedded in Dolphin Imaging’s SQL database Simple Graphical User Interface (GUI) Dolphin 3D includes powerful yet intuitive tools for you to process Dolphin 3D display of MRI dataset multi-dimensional datasets. There are no complicated commands or scripting language to learn. Processing and analyzing three- dimensional data has never been easier. Panoramic x-ray image created by Dolphin 3D from CBCT image
  3. 3. Easy Data Segmentation You prepare the 3D object by grouping intensity levels in pre-set ranges for soft tissue and hard tissue. After this simple procedure, you can easily review the object’s solid or translucent skeletal surface, solid, translucent, or photo of soft tissue surface, or both simultaneously. Views can be combined; such as translucent skeletal structures with translucent soft tissue 3D photo facial texture map (if available). Object Orientation To maximize the consistency of analysis of a 3D volume, it is crucial to establish a default orientation. Dolphin 3D provides comprehensive tools for defining the mid-sagittal, axial and coronal planes. You can also adjust the object’s default yaw, pitch and roll. These operations can be performed on the CT soft tissue surface, CT hard tissue surface or 3D photo surface. After a scan has been oriented, take advantage of the pre-set views: front, back, right, left, top, bottom, oblique and isometric views. Orientation setup screen Multiple Planar Views and Layouts Choose a layout that is best suited to your task: • 3D volume (just the 3D volume view) • Volume+3 planes (3D volume and 3 cross section planes on the side) • 4-views (3D volume and the cross section planes in equal sized windows) • Individual orthogonal projected slices: sagittal, coronal and axial planes You can also adjust Window Level (traverse through 12-bit, 14-bit or 16-bit levels of intensity), zoom, pan, rotate, etc. 4-views (3D volume and the cross section planes in equal sized windows)
  4. 4. Instant Ceph/Pan Create two-dimensional radiographic images from 3D volume dataset in the lateral, panoramic (OPG), frontal and SMV views. Reconstruct radiographs in: • 1:1 projection (no distortion, no magnification) • Simple orthogonal/magnification projection (input % of magnification desired) • Complex “traditional x-ray perspective” projection (input detailed x-ray machine geometry; most accurately simulates traditional x-ray) Image filters help emphasize different structures of interest; including: MIP (maximum intensity Collimate to the exact projection), Ray-sum (academic standard) and a collection of Dolphin proprietary filters. areas you require Radiographic images can be saved in the Dolphin Imaging database for report generation and two-dimensional cephalometric tracing (Dolphin Ceph Tracing software required for 2D tracing). Frontal x-ray generated by Dolphin 3D SMV x-ray generated by Dolphin 3D Lateral ceph generated by Dolphin 3D Generated ceph brought into Dolphin’s 2D Ceph Tracing module Digitizing/Measuring Dolphin 3D makes harvesting data from 3D volume simple, and is an excellent tool for research and data collection. You can measure distances and angles in 3D; design your own analysis in 3D or in 2D (Dolphin Ceph Tracing software required for 2D analysis). Analyze the airway by drawing a border around your selected portion of the volumetric scan; the program will automatically fill in and display all the airway space within that border, then report back telling you the volume of airway space in cubic millimeters. It will also locate, display and measure the most constricted spot of that airway. Landmarks can be used in a 3D analysis or translated into identified 2D lateral or frontal cephalometric analyses, such as Roth-Jarabak, McNamara, etc. Further, the 2D points can include x-ray magnification to be compatible with existing norm values. Digitized landmarks can be saved in Dolphin Imaging and exported to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or other numerical analysis programs.

  6. 6. 3D Visualization Dolphin gives you the power to freely visualize the volume in 3D. In addition to switching from hard tissue and soft tissue views, you can also activate the see-thru hard tissue renderings. Adjust the factor of translucency and intensity to reveal the structure you desire. Clipping tools are also very useful for quickly visualizing hidden structures, or to simply eliminate portions of the contents that are not relevant. Translucent hard tissue view Translucent soft tissue view Isolate desired region of interest Translucent soft- and hard-tissue images of pre- and post-surgery case View impacted teeth from any angle Movie/Image Layout Scripts You can create a script by collecting key frames of your 3D volume or slice views, and altering their position, zoom factor, System requirements: translucency, segmentation, clipping and timing attributes.
