State-of-the-art in 3D Virtual Planning in Ortognathic Surgery
Dear friends, dear colleagues,
It is my great pleasure to introduce a series of teaching events held by S.O.R.G. Academy. This course and hands-on workshop titled “State-of-the-art in 3D Virtual Planning in Orthognathic Surgery” in our opinion, is the best way to explore unchartered horizons and discover new chapters in maxillofacial surgery.
The introduction of computer planning, CBCT data, intraoral scanning and other new technologies have completely changed our working procedures. 3D imaging has become available for an increasing number of clinicians and is now a standard tool for diagnosis and treatment planning.
This hands-on PC-based 3D Virtual Planning workshop on Ortho-gnathic Surgery is suited for both surgeons and orthodontists and will be conducted by Professor Gwen R.J. Swennen. The intensive one day training course will focus on the workflow of Virtual Orthognathic Planning utilising the IPS CaseDesigner® planning software. The Catania Maxillofacial Surgery team will also present clinical results based on the same workflow procedure.
This course will be held in Catania at the University Hospital, Oral and Maxillofacial Unit directed by Prof. Alberto Bianchi.
For international participants, it will be an excellent opportunity to learn and visit one of the most important universities in the Mediterranean area; for the Italian attendees, it will be the first step to enter into a high level teaching academy.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Catania!
Prof. Alberto Bianchi
