Ayoub/Wray/Moss/Jin/Niblett/Urquhart/Mowforth/Siebert

Dental study casts form an essential part of patient records for both diagnostic and medicolegal purposes. Storage of study casts poses major problems because of inconvenience and cost of mass storage. Various methods for recording and storage of study casts are discussed. A new biostereometric technique for digitally recording and storing dental casts, and using the recent advances in stereophotogrammetry, is presented. Archiving dental casts in a digital format would reduce problems of mass storage na dprovide new benefits such as duplication of casts and use in clinical and research studies
