Multimodal Tracking of Three-dimensional Changes of Bones and Soft-tissues Over Time

In recent years, one of the foci of orthodontics has been on systems for the evaluation of treatment results and the tracking of tissue variations over time. This can be  accomplished through analyzing three-dimensional (3D) orthodontic images obtained before and after the treatments. Since complementary information is achieved by integrating multiple imaging modalities, cone beam CT (CBCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and stereophotogrammetry technologies are used in this study to develop a method for tracking bone, teeth, and facial soft-tissue variations over time.

We are now looking for a new Master student that will be fully paid for two years to continue the work but this time with the addition of MRI and X-ray fluoroscopic images.
