Virtual reduction and reconstruction

Virtual simulation of frontal bone reconstruction and zygoma reduction is performed by mirroring the unaffected side, after auto segmentation or by repositioning the segmented affected bones virtually. 

Reconstruction of orbital walls in unilateral trauma is achieved by mirroring the contralateral side. In bilateral cases, virtually bending and shaping of the segmented areas allows virtual orbital reconstruction.

After virtual reconstruction the modified dataset serves as a virtual template that can be used for intraoperative navigation, intraoperative imaging and postoperative quality control.
