Traditionally, we are trained to see and analyze the airway from only the lateral view on a cephalometric film. But the airway is a 3-D structure, and that third dimension may be hiding something relevant to our diagnosis. This presentation will highlight some of the airway research performed in 3-D at Case Western Reserve University. The presentation will also show how different commercially available programs can be used to analyze the airway in a volumetric way. When moving from 2-D to 3-D, the distances and angles will probably turn to surfaces and volumes.
