Paper Abstract

The conventional method for measuring small objects in three dimensions utilising close range stereo photogrammatic techniques is complex and time consuming. A recent development called the Reflex Metrograph allows unskilled operator to collect three dimensional co-ordinates both simply and rapidly. A clinical application to compare in vivo and in vitro measurements showed a similar level of precision. The results compare favourably with a conventional approach.
