Cephalometric landmarks include corners, line intersections, center points and other salient features of anatomical structures.
Our main contributions can be concluded in four aspects: (1) we propose a new landmark detection framework of multiscale decision tree regression voting; (2) SIFT-based patch feature is first employed to extract the local feature of cephalometric landmarks, and the proposed approach is flexible when extending to detection of more landmarks because feature selection and shape constraints are not used; (3) two clinical databases are used to evaluate the extension of the proposed method.
Measurements are either angular or linear parameters calculated by using cephalometric landmarks and planes (refer to Tables 1 and 2).
