This presentation reviews 35 common cephalometric tracing structures and illustrates their anatomy on the skull. Actual photos of the skull are used to show each landmark and relate it to the tracing of the same anatomy on the individual cephalometric head film. The audience will go away with a much better understanding of what each structure is in the typical cephalometric tracing and how it relates to the anatomy of the individual.
Identify 35 common cephalometric landmarks to be traced on a cephalometric head film
Identify several anatomical landmarks on the human skull
Relate the cephalometric tracing landmarks to those same landmarks on the human skull
