“With the support of NIH, we have developed the first quantitative normative database to diagnose craniofacial abnormalities. This new informatics resource, combined with novel methods in 3D surface imaging and 3D morphometry, provides the means of defining features of medical genetic conditions. These techniques permit, for the first time, objective and reliable quantitative diagnosis on a graded continuum.”
