Application of a compound imaging system to odontotherapy
A compound imaging system called thin observation module by bound optics was applied to odontotherapy, and its effectiveness and extendability were investigated. Experimental systems were constructed for the purposes of preliminary testing and hardware prototyping. Several basic odontotherapy operations were performed using the experimental systems. Promising results were obtained in the shape measurement of teeth and gingivae, as well as in spectral observation of gingival tissue.
