Models from CT Data, Stereolithography
Prosthodontist Duluth MN
“Today, our enormous investment in science and research is our evidence of our faith that science can not only make man richer — but science can make man better (Lyndon B. Johnson, 1967).”
Stereolithography is that type of science. The stereolithography process is a rapid prototyping method which allows the fabrication of anatomically accurate, 3-dimensional (3D) epoxy and acrylic resin models from various types of data. There are a myriad of data formats that can be used, some of which include those from computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) files, and laser scanners.
