Face Anthropometric Pattern Recognition Technology for Computer Aided Diagnosis of Human Genetic Disorders. (DW-6/2007)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The hypothesis to be tested: After the construction of a database of anthropometric measurements, the system would extract important features of a given facial surface and be able to match it with existing morphometric figures. A given combination of normal and abnormal measurements will open a "probable diagnosis" and a list of "differential diagnosis" that will be expressed as percent of matching in a descendent order to the examiner.
