Objective: To introduce a new type of measurement and diagnosis system for classification and treatment planning for hemifacial microsomias.
Methods: 14 hemifacial microsomia patients were recruited in this study. Their measurement of volume captured and calculated by 3dMD photogrammetric system were evaluated.
Results: The differences caused by asymmetric deformity can be showed.
Conclusions: 3dMD photogrammetric system has advantages. The initial experience is promising.
