Objective outcome analysis of nasal surgery remains difficult. Recently, evaluation of nasal shape following rhinosurgery shifted from two-dimensional evaluation to more sophisticated three-dimensional (3D) analysis techniques, including stereophotogrammetry, computed tomography, and 3D laser scanning. This article explores the feasibility of using 3D laser surface scanners as a tool for preoperative planning and quality control in rhinosurgery.
