The system, called C3D-clinical[2], captures overlapping images of the surface of a patient using TV cameras. The images are combined with calibration information to produce an accurate 3D metric model of the patient. The 3D model contains both the shape as well as the appearance of the patient and allows the direct measurement of distances, angles and areas. The system has a wide range of clinical uses as well as providing a clinical audit throughout a course of treatment or recovery. Examples are given for its application in maxillofacial surgical planning and dental cast archiving. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
