Digital Lateral Cephalometric (CEPH)



Cephalometric analysis depends on cephalometric radiography to study relationships between bony and soft tissue landmarks and can be used to diagnose facial growth abnormalities prior to treatment, in the middle of treatment to evaluate progress or at the conclusion of treatment to ascertain that the goals of treatment have been met.

Computerised cephalometric is the process of entering cephalometric data in digital format into a computer for cephalometric analysis. Digitisation (of radiographs) is the conversion of landmarks on a radiograph or tracing to numerical values on a two- (or three-) dimensional coordinate system, usually for the purpose of computerised cephalometric analysis. The process allows for automatic measurement of landmark relationships. hardware available, the incorporation of data can be performed by digitising points on a tracing, by scanning a tracing or a conventional radiograph, or by originally obtaining computerised radiographic images that are already in digital format, instead of conventional radiographs.

Computerised cephalometric offers the advantages of instant analysis; readily available race, sex and age-related norms for comparison as well as ease of soft tissue change and surgical predictions Computer processing of cephalometric radiographs uses a digitiser. Digitisation refers to the process of expressing analog information in a digital form. A digitiser is a computer input device which converts analog information into an electronic equivalent in the computer’s memory. In this treatise and its application to computerised cephalometric, digitisation refers to the resolution of the head film landmarks into two numeric or digital entities – the X and Y coordinate. 3D analysis would have third quantity – Z coordinates.
