Sample text

As described below, this collection of articles shows a wide range of applications in which 3D tools have been shown to be advantageous over previous methods of utilizing and analyzing images for facial plastic surgery. In the table of contents, the synopses for each article provide summaries for the reader, but I will mention here the thought behind the selection and sequencing of the articles. The review starts with a broad description of the technology of the 3D tools available. The articles then discuss the use of 3D tools for planning surgery including aesthetic considerations and creation of the virtual patient.

This light can be in the form of a single bright light source; however, a light stripe is more commonly used. As an object is illuminated it is viewed by an offset camera. Changes in the image of the light stripe correspond with the topography of the object, and these distortions are recorded to produce 3D data for the object. Practically, the light may remain fixed and the object move or vice versa. Geometry triangulation algorithms allow depth information to be calculated, coordinates of the facial surface can be derived, and computer software can be used to create a 3D model of the object.

Students, trainees, young scientists, and practitioners, whether junior or experienced, can readily gain knowledge and useful insights. Such empowerment will inevitably lead to advancing the state of the art, as well as of the science, in 3D facial plastic surgery. It is reasonable to assume that the diligent reader who studies and peruses this information will be able to implement more productively the principles and technologies outlined. And the readers, who dive aggressively into the supporting material in the articles, including the references to both prior and current work, will find themselves in danger of becoming experts in the field, so comprehensive and relevant and up to date is the content presented.
