Such subjectivity is not eliminated by electronic plotting equipment - despite its high resolution. Automatic (non-subjective) landmark identification of sella and menton was carried out in this study using the CLIP4 image processing system. The results obtained on 23 radiographs were compared with those of conventional… CONTINUE READING
