Description

These before and after sagital sections show an opening of the airway at the base of the tongue. The red green photo is an accurate registration of the before and after 3D images from dicom data acquired from CBCT scans using Analyze 10.0, developed by the Mayo Clinic. Red shows improved AP airway possibly due to head position and toning of the genioglossus muscle.
