Discussions relating to the biomechanics of the larynx are still generally controversial. The purpose of this study is to develop a 3D model of the larynx based on high-resolution computer tomography (HRCT) data identifying and visualizing anatomical landmarks and structures of the larynx. We examined four fresh cadaver larynges with HRCT. The DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) data were post-processed with the software package MIMICS for three-dimensional visualization. All relevant structures of the laryngeal cartilages could be identified on HRCT and visualized in a 3D model. We conclude that 1) HRCT provides excellent data for three-dimensional visualization of the laryngeal anatomy, and 2) the combined technology of HRCT and MIMICS is useful to study the biomechanics on 3D images and for preoperative planning of laryngeal framework surgery.
