In jaw deformity and cranio-maxillofacial malformations, maxillofacial morphologies unique to the diseases can be seen. In providing treatment, it is important to accurately evaluate/predict how the skeletal morphology and mechanistic structure will change in each disease. By automating the conventional, subjectively-based surgical planning and by turning it into algorithm through objective quantitative information, we aim for reproducibility and stabilizing quality of corrective surgery. The computer-assisted orthognathic surgery using computer vision provides the complete 3D output and would therefore add to the precision and confidence of the surgeon.
