Title / Titel CT-based reconstruction and comparative analysis of the Dmanisi hominins
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung - Establishment of hardware/software infrastructure for fossil computed tomography (CT) in Tbilisi
- CT-based acquisition of volumetric data of the fossil hominin specimens from Dmanisi
- SLS-based acquisition of surface data of the Dmanisi fossils
- Computer-assisted preparation and reconstruction of the craniomandibular remains
- Comparative geometric-morphometric analysis of craniomandibular morphology
- Micro- and macro-CT-based analysis of dentognathic morphology and paleopathology of the Dmanisi hominins
- Micro- and macro-CT-based analysis of appendicular morphology and paleopathology of the Dmanisi hominins
- Non-invasive replication of reconstructed specimens with 3D-printing technology
