Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7.
Graphics card with OpenGL 2.1.
Mouse or other pointing device.
Digitizer or Scanner or Video Camera or Digital Camera.
Highly recommended: graphics card with at least 512 Mb, OpenGL 3.0 (or later) support.
Predefined: Lateral ceph, Frontal ceph, Submentovertex, Dental casts.
These can be changed by the user. Other types can be user-defined.
Examples include Panoramic, TMJ Tomograms, Hand-wrist, Facial photographs, etc.
Digitization can be performed with a digitizer or on-screen using an image of the radiograph acquired
through a scanner or digital camera. WinTAB driver and TWAIN support is available.
Multiple digitization of points, in order to reduce point identification error, is supported.
Points can be skipped during digitization.
The number of points digitized and the sequence of digitization can be user-defined.
Images can be imported for digitization from a scanner or digital camera.
Viewbox reads BMP, JPEG, TIFF files (uncompressed types) and some types of DICOM files,
and supports the TWAIN interface for direct image acquisition.
Image transparency and interactive rotation allows for structural superimposition.
Image enhancement features include Equalize, Adaptive Equalize, CLAHE, Levels, Adaptive Levels, Brightness / Contrast / Gamma, Inverse and Colourise.
Loads DICOM datasets from CBCT machines. 3D rendering using iso-surface, transfer functions, maximum intensity projection (MIP) and x-ray simulation. Arbitrary slices. Volume histogram adjustments. Volume segmentation.
Loads meshes (OBJ and STL files). Mesh segmentation, decimation, smoothing, cropping and cutting. Mesh alignment using iterative closest point algorithm.
Morphing of images to produce photo-realistic pictures of post-treatment results.
Morphing is based on treatment prediction of hard and soft tissue structures.
Interactive morphing gives immediate feedback during treatment planning.
Predefined analyses for Lateral ceph: Steiner, Tweed, Down's, McNamara, Ricketts (10 factor),
Burstone and coworkers' analysis for orthognathic surgery, Riedel, Legan, Holdaway, Sassouni.
Predefined analysis for Frontal ceph: Grummons.
Other analyses can be user-defined.
A large number of cephalometric measurements are pre-defined.
Others can be defined by the user.
Normal values (mean and standard deviation) are age and sex-specific and can be defined by the user.
Up to 10 radiographs of the same or different patients can be superimposed.
Superimpositions can be user-defined (5 available types, including Procrustes).
Tracing printed on any Windows-supported printer.
Text-only version of analysis can also be printed. Wide customization capabilities.
Visual Treatment Objective (VTO):
Treatment predictions can be performed by moving skeletal and dental units.
A multiple undo feature is available.
Soft-tissue adjustments to hard-tissue movements can be automatically performed according to
user-defined adjustment ratios.
Tracing's colours and line styles can be user-defined.
Measurements can be shown colour-coded according to user-defined normal values.
Different radiographs can be displayed side by side (e.g. frontal and lateral).
Selective displaying of skeletal and dental structures.
The average of several radiographs can be calculated.
Tracing and measurements can be copied to the Windows Clipboard and pasted to other
Windows programs (word processor, graphics programs, etc.).
Analysis results can be saved to a text file for statistical evaluation by statistics programs.
Direct sending to PowerPoint, Excel and Word.
Viewbox can search and find patients that have a similar skeletal pattern,
so that you can treatment plan based on previous experience with other patients.
Performs Procrustes superimposition and calculates Principal Components of shape.
Includes measurements for Procrustes distance.
