Maxillofacial Surgery Planning and Simulation
System (MaxSim) – A software tool for diagnosis,
Cephalometric analysis and orthognathic surgical
planning and simulation
MaxSim is a tool for planning, evaluating and
simulating maxillofacial surgery procedures that
can aid treating diseases, fixing injuries or
correcting defects in the face, jaw or mouth.
The tool helps maxillofacial surgeons, dental
clinicians and dental students to efficiently
and effectively plan & simulate maxillo-facial
surgery procedures. Due to the complexity of the
maxillofacial surgery, the novice should be
sufficiently trained before one is qualified to
carry on the surgery. The tool helps to reduce
the training costs, improve the training
efficiency & reduce high cost import software
Patients can pre-visualize their face before
surgery and choose their treatment accordingly.
It can improve the communication between doctor
team and patient and allows the patients to push
away the fear of surgery.
A maxillo-facial surgery is normally planned by
means of lateral X-ray images (Cephalograms).
Initially various cephalometric landmarks are
placed in the x-ray. Based on the landmarks
various distances and angles are measured and
compared to their normal values. Different types
of Cephalometric analysis are performed based on
these values and a surgical plan is derived.
These surgical plans can be evaluated and
simulated using the software.
