Recognition and treatment of craniofacial deformities require an understanding of complex skeletal structures in three planes of space. Traditional imaging techniques rely on biplanar radiographs which provide only two-dimensional data. The introduction of three-dimensional image display (3DIR) has provided a method of object analysis in three planes of space, obviating the need for mental reconstruction, and yielding more spatial information than was previously available. This study was… CONTINUE READING
