Abstract

This resource is an interactive module on cephalometrics as a diagnostic procedure. The module starts with a brief introduction and then covers anatomic structures, landmarks, planes, and angles, followed by an interactive area to input data from actual patients to get basic interpretation. Based on a student survey, the content achieves the intended purpose effectively. In addition, the graphic interface and interactivity features makes it easier for them to understand the concepts. This module prepares students for practical activities and is intended to be a complement to lectures, seminars, and labs on the topic.


Educational Objectives

By the end of this session, learners will be able to gain a better understanding of Cephalometrics analysis.
