Abstract

Lateral Cephalometry (LC) and Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) are 2 time tested imaging techniques which have been utilized for identification of pathologies and morphometric analysis of various oral structures. LC gives a 2 dimensional view of 3 dimensional structures thereby assisting in clinical diagnosis and progression of diseases. CBCT gives a 3 dimensional image thus reducing the error and giving a more closer than natural image. Oral Submucous Fibrosis (OSMF) has been studied in depth in all aspects. Our review aimed at exploring the use and efficacy of LC in CBCT in measuring airway in OSMF patients.

Keywords: CBCT, OSMF, Velum, Cephalometry.
