Abstract : Objective: To determine if a life size skull replica representing the normal dimensions of a human skull and patient, can be accurately constructed into a three dimensional (3-D) image using digital dental casts, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and modern imaging software. Dimensional accuracy between the physical and virtual models are measured and verified using physical and computer markings. Measurements are compared to determine if the markings, i.e. physical and computer generated are identical.
