Mendonca DA, Skolnick GA, Naidoo S, Woo AS. Comparative study of cranial anthropometric measurement by calipers versus computed tomography and three-dimensional photographic images Journal of Craniofacial Surgery 2013 Jul; 24(4):1106-10.
Craniofacial anthropometry by direct caliper measurements is a common method of quantifying the morphology of the cranial vault. New digital imaging modalities including computed tomography and three-dimensional photogrammetry are similarly being used to obtain craniofacial surface measurements. This study sought to compare the accuracy of anthropometric measurements obtained by calipers versus 2 methods of digital imaging.
