dc.description.abstractOver the last three years this PhD research has focussed on the area of Maxillofacial Additive Manufactured Surgical Guides. A mix of qualitative and quantitative research has been undertaken to develop new knowledge about how guides are used, the cleanliness and surface roughness characteristics of the materials and the accuracy of procedures. The PhD thesis will cover the research results from the above topics, summarising and highlighting specific advantages & limitations from the planning, designing, fabrication and use of maxillofacial surgical guides. The discussion will highlight how the work has challenged some common assumptions; conclude the clinical implications of this and the need for further research.en_US
