12 July 1983 Study Of Craniofacial Anomalies With A Portable Stereo Camera
Author Affiliations +
This investigation was designed to devise an accurate topographic method for description and comparison of infants and children with craniofacial anomalies. Variations from the norm also could be studied. Biostereometrics was the method of choice. As the infants could not be brought to one central office, a portable stereo camera unit was built. Two 23/4" x 23/4" cameras were mounted on one base and synchronized to expose simultaneously with the flash unit pointed towards the ceiling. A pair of stereo photographs was obtained. The stereo photographs were used to create a face contour diagram and measured in X, Y, Z coordinates and provided quantitative data in three dimensions which can be used for comparative studies.
