ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00705055
First received: June 19, 2008
Last updated: November 19, 2013
Last verified: November 2013
  Purpose

The hypothesis to be tested: After the construction of a database of anthropometric measurements, the system would extract important features of a given facial surface and be able to match it with existing morphometric figures. A given combination of normal and abnormal measurements will open a "probable diagnosis" and a list of "differential diagnosis" that will be expressed as percent of matching in a descendent order to the examiner.
