Abstract

Most cephalometric analyses make extensive use of angular measurements. This usage is based on the assumption that angular measurements for a particular individual tend to remain relatively constant with respect to time, ie, that they are affected minimally by growth. The tenability of this assumption is challenged in several instances on the basis of the results of a cross-sectional cephalometric study of certain angular variables.
