was calculated as a proportion of head width to head length expressed as a percentage as follows:
11] conducted the study of cephalic index
in Gujarat region.
The cephalic index
for males is higher than in females resulting in a different frontal face view of the sexes (= sexual dimorphism).
To determine the cephalic index
(CI), a spreading cranial calipers (GPM Instruments, Switzerland) was used to measure the euryon-to-euryon distance divided by the distance from glabella to opisthocranium.
For assessing the cephalic index
the Hrdlicka's method was used: the head-length (hl)-greatest anteroposterior diameter, and the head-breadth (hb) maximum transverse diameter between two fixed points were measured with the subjects positioned on a table.
Aims & Objectives: To study the cephalic index
, in Vindhya region of Madhya Pradesh.
were determined on the basis of International Anatomical Descriptive (Williams et al.
The horizontal cephalic index
indicates that their head belongs to brachycephalic type (Coon, 1939; Dhima; Gunter, 1927; Mcculloch, 2008; Ylli).
The most important cephalometric dimension are length and width of head that determines cephalic index
It is observed variability of the components that constitute the arterial cerebral circle when it is considered to be the side, the sex and cephalic index
This descriptive investigation was undertaken on 198 young Turkman males to determine the cephalic index
and head phenotype among them in Gorgan, North of Iran.
SUMMARY: Cephalic index
and head shape are affected by geographical, gender, age, racial and ethnic factors.
93 cm, with the width and cephalic index
to the magnitude of 10.
The most important of cephalometric dimension are height and weight of head that with using of them we can determine cephalic index
The objective of this study is to complement the data collected in previous researchs being studied the possible biometrical relation between the cephalic index
, the cerebellar fossa, clivus and the basilar artery in the studied specimens.
