About the collection

The scope of this special issue includes, but is not limited to: 

1. Advanced imaging technologies in orthognathic surgery: Exploration of novel imaging modalities and their applications in preoperative planning, intraoperative guidance, and postoperative assessment, including 3D imaging, virtual surgical planning, and augmented reality. 
2. Computer-aided osteotomy techniques: Investigation of state-of-the-art computer-aided surgical techniques, such as patient-specific cutting guides, robot-assisted surgery, and navigation systems, and their impact on surgical precision and outcomes.
3. Integration of digital workflow in orthognathic surgery: Evaluation of the impact of digital workflows, including digital patient records, telemedicine, and remote collaboration, on clinical efficiency and patient care.
4. Outcome assessment and validation: Comparative studies assessing the clinical outcomes, accuracy, and effectiveness of computer-assisted imaging and osteotomy techniques versus conventional methods in orthognathic surgery.
5. Educational and training aspects: Analysis of the role of simulation and computer-assisted technologies in training and skill development for orthognathic surgery, as well as addressing the learning curve associated with adopting these technologies.
6. Ethical considerations and patient perspectives: Examination of ethical concerns, patient perspectives, and decision-making processes related to the use of computer-assisted imaging and osteotomy techniques in orthognathic surgery.
7. Future trends and challenges: Perspectives on the future of computer-assisted imaging and osteotomy techniques, addressing technological advancements, cost-effectiveness, and barriers to implementation in clinical practice. We welcome contributions from experts in the fields of maxillofacial surgery, oral and maxillofacial radiology, biomedical engineering, and related disciplines, to present a multidisciplinary perspective on the role of technology in orthognathic surgery.
