Evaluation of a cephalometric software
Abstract
Aim: to evaluate the cephalometric software Radiocef 2.0 regarding reliability and precision, as compared to the 
conventional manual tracing and measuring procedures, and to the software Dentofacial Planner 7.02 (Gold Stan-
dard). Methods: the sample consisted of 50 good quality lateral head films from patients of both gender at the 11 
to 24-year age range belonging to the files of the orthodontic graduate clinic at Bauru Dental School, University of 
São Paulo. The radiographs were traced and measured by different methodologies generating four groups as follows: 
Group 1 (the radiographs were manually traced and measured); Group 2 (the cephalograms and landmarks were 
scanned and measured with Radiocef 2.0 software); Group 3 (the radiographs were scanned and measured with 
Radiocef 2.0 software); and Group 4 (the landmarks were digitized and measured with Dentofacial Planner 7.02 soft-
ware). Linear and angular measurements were performed and an analysis of variance and a Kruskal-Wallis test were 
conducted for intergroup comparison. Results: results demonstrated no statistically significant differences between 
the groups. Conclusions: the software is reliable to be used for clinical and investigative purposes and that Radiocef 
2.0 can be used by either scanning the cephalograms and landmarks or by scanning the radiograph itself.
Key words: Computerized cephalometrics. Computerized cephalometric tracing. Cephalometric software.
