Abstract: Using fibula flap for mandible reconstruction becomes a common method. Pre-surgical planning always assumes a known removal portion of mandible to plan the cutting of fibula. Researchers have developed jig or mechanism to assist doctors in measuring and guiding cutting locations of the mandible. However, the true locations of mandible removal are never known. To ease the problem, standard mandible parameters is required to locate the removal area. This paper aims to construct a reference line for parameterizing the mandible. The reference line can be divided into four portions that are coincident with the anatomical features areas of the mandible: Symphysis, Body, Angle, and Ramus. Each portion is then re-sampled into 10-15 sections, and these sections faithfully represent the mandible shape. Thus, all mandibles are re-defined by these 101 sections. Using these mandible parameters, the removal area is recorded by numerical addressable locations to compute the fibula cut, and the mand ible and fibula can be aligned according to the parameters for planning the reconstruction.
