In order to plan mandibular distraction, 3D techniques of volumetric reconstruction and image processing were applied. The 3D model of the mandible was obtained from standard 2D Computed Tomography images using a suitable 2D-to-3D image processing. The end purpose of this study is to provide the surgeon with a 3D model of the patient mandible where it would be possible to find, in the pre-surgical phase, the exact point of implantation with respect to patient’s anatomy and to build a customized distractor properly fitting the bone surface of the patient.
