The technique utilizes two stereo pairs of videocameras, a stereo pair at each side of the patient's face. The system allows rapid capture of the face in three dimensions and precise measurement of anatomic landmarks. The system can be used to capture the facial image and a cephalogram almost simultaneously, allowing more accurate superimposition of soft and hard tissues. This precision will facilitate development of the surgical treatment plan. A computer program in the early stages of development will use the data generated by this biostereometric measurement system to predict soft tissue changes following orthognathic surgery. </ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
