The learning objectives of the programme are as follows
·         Provide a definition of cephalometry

·         Describe the clinical information that can be gained from a lateral cephalogram

On completion of the tutorial and the exercise in Digitutor point identification there is a
short question and answer section which will enable you to obtain CPD relevant to the
We hope very much that you find this resource useful and would welcome any feedback

I would like to acknowledge, and thank on behalf of the Society, Sally Walker, member of
