Ar-Go measurement describes the linear distance between articulare and gonion providing the mandibular ramal length.
It has been found that the gonion, orbitale, porion, menton and lower incisor apex were the most inconsistent and unreliable points (7,15) this might have contributed to the difference in FMA and L1 to MP.
Lower gonial angle: N-GO-ME###Measured at the angle between Gonion constructed-Nasion line
The Condylon Gonion Displacement Index (CGDI) was calculated by using the formula as detailed below.
PAS: measured between the posterior pharyngeal wall and the dorsum of the tongue on a line joining the gonion to the B point
