Abstract
For the evaluation and diagnosis of many craniofacial abnormalities, a standardized profile x-ray film of the head (sometimes called a cephalogram) is often a convenient radiological aid available to the clinician. From these radiographs one may observe, in a qualitative sense, such syndromes as Pierre-Robin, Downes' syndrome, Aperts, Thallassemia, as well as less severe abnormalities such as disharmonious development of the jaws resulting in malocclusion.
