Abstract
The initiation of a research project involving stereophotogrammetry for the investigation of changes in facial morphology in children over a period of ten years (Burke P.H.(1972). The accuracy and range of certain stereophotogrammetric measurements of facial morphology. Transactions of the European Orthodontic Society) led to the establishment of Biostereometrics in Addenbrooke's Hospital. This is now used for recording and studying structural changes due to growth, disease or trauma as an aid to diagnosis and treatment of patients. The acceptance of this technique has been largely due to the adherence to pure photogrammetric principles which are easily understood and to good photography leading to simple and rapid analysis of the stereopairs. The equipment and methods used together with examples of ongoing projects will be described.
