Computer based framework for cranio-maxillofacial surgery planning

Michał Chlebiej, Zdzisław Król, Paweł Mikołajczak


Nowadays the process of surgical planning is a crucial point of every operation in the craniofacial region. In this work we focus on the planning of graft reconstructive surgery for autologous osseous grafts. The planning method consists of two stages. The non-automatic graft design step is followed by a fully automatic procedure to find the best harvesting site in the predefined donor region. The main idea of the proposed method is based on the registration paradigm. The optimal donor site is identified by performing an optimization of the surface based similarity measure between the donor region and the designed graft template. An efficient optimization method based on the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm has been implemented.
