Cicero Moraes has published the first part of a 3D training he helped create for health professionals.
This post is an introductory material, created for our online and classroom course of "Basic Principles of 3D Computer Graphics Applied to Health Sciences". The training is the result of a partnership that began in 2014, together with the renowned Brazilian orthognathic surgeon, Dr. Everton da Rosa.
Initially the objective was to develop a surgical planning methodology using only free and freeware software. The work was successful and we decided to share the results with the orthognathic surgery community. As soon as we put the first contents related to the searches in our social media, the demand was great and it was not only limited to the professionals of the Dentistry, but extended to all the fields of the human health as well as veterinary.
In view of this demand, we decided to open the initial and theoretical contents of the topics that cover our course (which is pretty practical). In this way, those interested will be able to learn a little about the concepts involved in the training, while those in the area of computer graphics will have at hand a material that will introduce them to the field of modelling and digitisation in the health sciences.
In this first post we will cover the concepts related to 3D objects and scenes visualization.
We hope you enjoy it, good reading!
