Cephalometric landmarks identification and reproducibility: a meta analysis.


To assess the magnitude of cephalometric landmarks identification error, we performed a Meta analysis on six pertinent studies. We outline the procedures used to compare and integrate the findings of these-studies. The results are a measure of systematic and random errors involved when locating landmarks on lateral head films. They are presented as standard mean errors and 95% confidence intervals for the repeatability and reproducibility of 15 cephalometric landmarks commonly used in growth analysis.
