Craniofacial Anthropometry

Practical Measurement of the Head and Face for Clinical, Surgical and Research Use

John Kolar,

Craniofacial Anthropometry: Practical Measurement of the Head and Face for Clinical, Surgical and Research Use
 
 
This book is a standard reference manual designed for a broad interdisciplinary audience of anthropologists, biomedical engineers, clinical dysmorpholo-gists, forensic scientists, psychologists, artists and medical illustrators, radiologists, reconstructive surgeons, and anyone else interested in the measurement of the human head and face. Unlike other anthropometric manuals, which describe the human body in great detail but largely ignore the head and face, this book is devoted to the accurate presentation of the head and face. After a brief history of the development of craniofacial anthropometry, this manual presents a comprehensive picture of the ingredients necessary to carry out rigorous study of the head and face, from the essentials of setting up a craniofacial laboratory, including basic facilities and equipment, to the instruments needed, to highly detailed and illustrated descriptions of the landmarks and measurements, including synonyms and variants on techniques found in the earlier literature. New instruments are introduced which expand the tools available to researchers concerned with growth and morphology of the head and face. In addition to the descriptive chapters, the authors demonstrate methods for analyzing and interpreting the data collected through these techniques, including studies of normal populations, as well as analysis of clinical dysmorphology. The clinical application of anthropometry in the design of surgical reconstruction of congenital and traumatic anomalies of the head and face is presented through a series of increasingly complex case studies illustrating a variety of procedures. The book concludes with an examination of some of the newest computer imaging techniques and their potential for quantitative craniofacial analysis.
