Abstract: We present an age-dependent statistical head shape model and automated machine learning methods for objective head shape evaluation of CT images or 3D photographs. Our results show a significant improvement compared to previous age-agnostic models and encourage the clinical use of 3D photogrammetry to reduce exposure to radiation of children.
