O his book has been long overdue for the specialties of orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, prosthodontics, pediatric dentistry and anyone who deals with changes in the craniofacial complex. Since its introduction in 1931, radiographic

cephalometry has become one of the most important diagnostic tools for evaluating the craniofacial structures. A plethora of cephalometric analyses have been developed since the technique was developed. These analyses include angular and linear measurements made from anthropometric landmarks on craniofacial structures, landmarks such as actual anatomical points and those created by the cephalometric technique. Cephalometry has been used for clinical diagnosis and treatment planning and to evaluate the effects of treatment. Originally, it was developed for research and has been used as a

tool to study longitudinal changes in the craniofacial structures. Results from these studies have added to our understanding of growth and development of the craniofacial skeleton. Dr. Athanasiou and his distinguished panel of contributors have taken a fresh look at this tool and have provided an excellent book to benefit students, practitioners and researchers. The renowned authors have created a book that provides a comprehensive resource for the important theoretical and practical aspects of the subject. Furthermore, they address technological advances like digital
