ABSTRACT: Computer-based techniques for the simulation of craniofacial surgical procedures and for the prediction of the surgical outcome have been shown to be very useful. However, the assessment of the accuracy of the simulated surgical outcome is difficult. In this paper, a robust registration technique is described which allows to compare the simulated surgical outcome and the actual surgical result.
