|Ceph Tracing and Analysis and Treatment Simulation (Parts V and VI)
New 2D "AP Symmetry" Model Analysis
The Dolphin Ceph Tracing module has historically had several arch length discrepancy analyses.
Version 11.95 adds a new AP Symmetry study model analysis.
Ceph Analysis Norm Citations
Historically, if you examined a ceph analysis in the Custom Analysis
Editor and viewed the properties of a measurement, you would see
the set of norms labeled something like â€śNorm set 0â€ť. We have
started a campaign of adding bibliographic citations to our norms,
so you can see the exact book or journal page source of those
norms. For example, the norms for the Facial Angle measurement in the Downs analysis now say:
â€śDowns, W. 'Variations in Facial Relationships' AJO 34.10 (1948): 812-40. Web.â€ť. We are going through
our analyses methodically, adding norm citations. Version 11.95 has some citations, and we will continue
to add more over time.
Add U1-PP Angle to 2D VTO Goals Chart
We have added the â€śUpper incisor to Palatal Planeâ€ť goal to the 2D Treatment Simulation
moduleâ€™s Goals Panel.
Add "Tooth Chart" Menu Item
Dolphin Imaging customers have historically had access to edit a
patientâ€™s tooth chart via the patient details screen. This tooth chart is
especially useful for calculating arch length discrepancy in the 2D
Treatment Simulation module after extraction/bridging/stripping/etc. But
Dolphin Management customers have a different patient details screen,
without that imaging tooth chart. So in 11.95 we have added a menu
item to access the imaging tooth chart via Tools | Tooth Chart.
3D Study Model Module (Part X)
Ability to Import CEREC .DIXD Files (26-99)
Version 11.8 added CEREC integration for acquiring CEREC digital study
models directly from a CEREC machine into Dolphin. Version 11.95 adds the
ability to import CERECâ€™s .DIXD format files, outside of the integration.
Ability to Discard Color when Importing Color Study Models(26-99)
Version 11.9 added the ability to import study models in .OBJ color format.
Version 11.95 adds the ability to optionally discard the color information upon
import. This is useful for customers who donâ€™t want/need the color, or who are
running out of memory when importing high-memory-usage color scans
Ability to Turn Study Model Color On and Off (26-24)
In Version 11.9, digital models that had been imported in color were always shown in color. Version 11.95
adds the ability to turn the color display on and off at will
Ability to Export Surfaces Combined or Separate (26-96 to 26-97)
When viewing multiple surfaces, and clicking the â€śExportâ€ť
button, the user can now choose whether to export all the
selected surfaces combined into one export file, or whether
to export each selected surface into its own separate file.
This is useful if the user plans to import the Dolphingenerated
surfaces into other software, such as for 3D
Ability to Export Surfaces in Current Orientation/Occlusion Position (26-105)
When exporting models from inside the Arch Models add/edit window, there is a new option to export the
arches in their current occlusion/orientation position. This is useful if the user plans to import Dolphingenerated
surfaces into other software.
Dolphin 3D (Part X)
New 3D Study Model Features
Since the Dolphin3D module includes the 3D Study Models module, customers who purchase Dolphin3D
will get all the new 3D Study Model features listed above.
â€śDownsize and Loadâ€ť Process (26-4)
Dolphin has historically had the ability to downsize large high-res DICOM volumes to a more workable
size, and then save the downsized DICOM to a file, and then load the downsized file into Dolphin3D.
Version 11.95 adds the ability to â€śdownsize and loadâ€ť all in one easy step.
Advanced Orientation Features (27-10 to 27-21)
11.95 adds very sophisticated new 3D orientation features, which allow the user to transfer clinical
orientation measurements taken on the patient using lasers and markers, to the virtual patient. These are
in the new â€śCant/Rollâ€ť, â€śYawâ€ť, and â€śPitchâ€ť tabs of the orientation screen.
Airway Path Boundary Feature (31-11 to 31-13)
Historically, Dolphin3D did airway studies by having the user draw a boundary, drop in a â€śseedâ€ť point, and
the software would fill the airway within the boundary. Version 11.9 added an alternate airway analysis
method, in which the user would simply draw a curved path, following the shape of the airway, and the
software would fill and measure and color-code the airway along that path. But sometimes the airway airspace
can be connected to the air-space above the tongue, so the airway would flow into that area.
Version 11.95 adds the ability to draw a boundary around the curved path airway, to constrain it.
Dolphin 3D Surgery (Chapter 37)
Toolbar Button for 3D Surgery (37-1)
Historically, the 3D Surgery module has been hidden inside the â€śToolsâ€ť menu of
Dolphin3D. Now, for convenience, there is a new button right on the toolbar for
entering the 3D Surgery module.
Ability to Export 3D Surgery Surfaces Combined or Separate(37-121 to 37-122)
Similar to the new feature in the main 3D Study Model/Dolphin3D screen, when viewing multiple surfaces
in the â€śpresentâ€ť tab of 3D surgery and clicking the â€śExportâ€ť button, the user can now choose whether to
export all of the selected surfaces combined into one export file or export each selected surface into its
own separate file. This is useful if the user plans to import Dolphin-generated surfaces into other
software, such as for 3D printing.
