|The Bolton-Brush Growth Study Center (Cleveland, OH) in cooperation with Motion View, LLC™ (Chattanooga, TN) announced the release of the Bolton Cephalometric Standards Template System™ in digital form for use in evaluating the skeletal, dental, and orthodontic conditions of orthodontic patients.||
The system is a collection of ideally proportioned cephalometric tracing templates based on age, nationality, and gender which eliminate the need for manually tracing cephalometric x-rays.
Motion View, LLC™ will make a donation to the Bolton-Brush Growth Study Center for every purchase of the Bolton Cephalometric Standards Template System™.
The templates can overlay the lateral cephalometric x-ray, facial photo, or facial scan of a patient to quickly compare the patient's facial proportions with those of an "ideal" standard for the population group that most closely matches that of the patient.
Using the Bolton Cephalometric Standards Template System™ eliminates the need to train assistants in landmark recognition. Users obtain dental and skeletal diagnostic information including the following: A-P incisors positions, incisors relationship to maxilla and mandible, A-P maxillary and mandibular skeletal positions, upper to lower face height proportions, and anterior and posterior jaw heights... All without having to provide any anatomy training for the staff.
The comparison gives the doctor an immediate assessment of the patient's skeletal and dental relationships in relationship to standards. The comparison data is useful for planning treatment goals that are consistent with the jaw and facial characteristics of people in similar race and age groups.
Dr. Mark Hans (Director and Curator, Bolton-Brush Growth Study Center) is among international researchers identifying, diagramming, and cataloging the variances in tooth, jaw, and facial features for multiple population groups.
About the Bolton-Brush Growth Study Center
The Bolton-Brush Growth Study Center emerged in 1970 as a combination of the research and data collections by the Brush Inquiry and the Bolton Study. The Center’s collection of longitudinal human growth data is the largest in the world. Radiographs in the collection include frontal and lateral views of the head. Cephalometric tracings were used to study craniofacial growth throughout childhood and into adulthood.
