Subject: [roots] Complex molar anatomy in mCT

Our department has recently acquired an mCT (SkyScan 1174). I found an 
fused molar and decided to reconstruct it.  The result is attached. 
Very complex anatomy...Does someone is able to clean and shape it??

Just for having fun... Cheers - Marco Versiani

Brilliant  - Kendo

Hi Kendo, Actually, we are now working on the idea of developing some 
kind of "digital tooth atlas" in order to present the internal anatomy 
and its variations in high level graphics as this one. Apart this project,
I am developing some animations (using 3D Max) with high graphic dental 
images. It is not so easy, but it is not impossible. Despite your 
enthusiastic approach (probably because you know the educational
- and commenrcial - potential of this), it is interesting to notice 
the small number of comments to a post like this one.-  Marco

That is very expensice toy! Beautiful images - Carlos Murgel

Just another example of the "complex" problem we are trying to solve 
using 1 instrument.... this image represents a mandibular canine with 
focus on its apical region. -  Marco Versiani

Hi Marco, Great catch and even greater discussion topic,

The imposing question is can we "solve" it using more instruments? 
Is the number of files that important? How much can we rely on files 
to do our job (root canal disinfection)?

Anyway, great job you're doing with your -CT  in keep us posted. 
Greetings fromm Amsterdam, - Ricardo

Hi Ricardo, You really got a point! In spite so many technological 
advances, the root canal anatomy is still our challenge to be face. 
Thanks for remember us our "mortal condition". -  Marco

Marco!!! EXCELLENT documentation, do you mind if I use this picture 
during my lectures? - Dr jhoyo

Dear Colleague, Be free to use it in your lectures...that is the 
reason for sharing. - Marco
