The Maxillo-Facial Surgery System for guided cancer resection and bone reconstruction

Abstract—The aim of this work was to develop a new computer system to support oncologic surgery in the maxillofacial area (Maxillo-Facial Surgery System). The system applies DICOM data (Magnetic Resonance Imaging-MRI and Computed Tomography-CT scans) during the phase of virtual planning of surgical scenario, to identify the location and spatial geometry of cancer, as well as it serves to plan resection and reconstruction of bone tissue using bio-implants. The intraoperative phase applies computer aided optical and …
