There are 2 distinct groups of analytical methods used in cephalometry: Landmark based techniques and Boundary outline methods. Landmark-based techniques are dependent on cephalometric landmarks. Boundary outline techniques survey only the perimeter of the structure. The use of algebraic measurements in traditional ceph analyses is known as conventional ceph analysis (CCA). It is a landmark based technique. Linear distance measurements between two landmarks. Angles, Areas & ratios are the parameters used by CCA. Morphometrics in representation of form, mapping of visual information into a numerical representation, viable for statistical analysis. The different types are: 1. Multivariate Morphometrics. 2. Co-ordinate Morphometrics. 3. Boundary Morphometrics. 4.
