In the evaluation of 101 cephalometric x-rays, the measuring point infraorbitale Io is established for the cephalometric analysis of the middle third of the face. Being the most ventral point in the infraorbital region Io can easily be identified on radiograms. As cephalometric parameters of the middle third of the face, the angles SNaIo, IoNaA as well as(More)
