Abstract

The systems and methods disclosed herein employ superposition of two-dimensional video and a rendered, three-dimensional image to provide visual feedback during acquisition and analysis of three-dimensional data. These systems and methods may be usefully employed in a context such as dentistry to assist in the acquisition of highly detailed and accurate digital dental models from the dentition of a dental patient.
