Hands on Workshop - 3D Registration - Joint Cephalometric Experts


This workshop will highlight new developments in publicly available software for image superimpositions in Dental applications. 3D image analysis continue to mandate a multidisciplinary collaborative team including clinician researchers, software engineers and computer science experts. This hands-on workshop for Cranio Maxillo Facial applications will be held prior to the Joint Cephalometric Experts Group 2013 at the Bolton Brush Growth Study Center, Cleveland, OH. This work was supported by the National Institute Of Dental & Craniofacial Research of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number R01DE024450.

Date and Location

Wednesday November 20th , 1:00-­‐5:00 pm, at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.

Workshop Content

12:00pm Trouble shoot any problem attendees may have had downloading the software from the website. Please do your best to download the software ahead of time.

1:00pm Introductory presentations:(20 Mins each )

• 3D image analysis: an overview. • 3D registration: voxel based, surface to surface, point to point: bone remodeling and displacement in relative superimposition. • 3D data: A chair side perspective. 2:00pm Hands-­‐on workshop: (3 hours)- See information on 3D registration - longitudinal and across subjects webpage.

• How to load CBCT and Surface models in new CMFreg module in Slicer 4.3 open source software. • How to correct for differences in CBCT acquisition at different time points in Slicer 4.3. • How to register the images and save them as surface models in Slicer • How to visualize meshes overlays in Slicer

Preparation for the workshop

The workshop combines oral presentations and instructor-led hands-on sessions with the participants working on their own laptop computers. All participants are required to come with their own laptop computer (rather be MAC OS X) and install the software and datasets prior to the event. Slicer requires 1GB of RAM absolute minimum, with more highly recommended. Common data sets may require 4GB or more RAM for processing. A fast graphics card or GPU that supports OpenGL is also recommended.

Slicer is built and tested on many hardware and software platforms. 3D Slicer runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7; Mac OS X versions 10.5 (Leopard), 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and 10.7 (Lion); and a variety of Linux distributions.
