This study aims to compare theaccuracy of the computerised procedure from digitising the radiograph to the finalcephalometric analysis. Twenty—six lateral cephalograms were analysed, thirteenlandmarks were permanently marked and traced and eighteen variables; nine anglesand nine lines in both horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) directions were measuredmanually first, then scanned and the same landmarks were digitised on—screen usingViewbox 3.0.l cephalometric computer sottware.
