Computed tomography allows today to reconstruct three-dimensional (3D) images from axial scans. The authors report their experience in cranio-facial pathology achieved in two Departments of Radiology (University of Trieste, Italy and University of Stanford, California). 3D images have been realized using two different softwares, one of which allows to reconstruct both soft tissue and bone structures. The applications in maxillo-facial traumas, cranio-facial malformations and head tumours are discussed. 3D images turned out to be very useful for the optimal visualization and for the spatial demonstration of the lesion and have potential applications in cranio-facial surgery and radiotherapy.
