DICOM Data Integration



Users can import the DICOM data and align it with the oral and facial data to create a virtual patient. This virtual patient owns more comprehensive information, polishes the diagnosis, enhances the communication between dentists and patients, and provided more general guidance for designers to create suitable treatments. The alignment results could be imported to the EXOCAD directly without manual alignment.

The DICOM data can be imported in the creation stage of orders or the alignment stage.


STEP1: Import in the creation stage of orders

Click the “import DICOM data” button, and select the corresponding file folder.
