Comparison of Digital Measurement versus Physical Model Measurement: An Analysis of Accuracy and Precision.

Posted on

Objective: The objective of this study was to compare the accuracy and precision of digital model measurement to physical measurement of orthodontic models. To assess accuracy, teeth were removed from a typodont and measured individually to obtain a gold standard measurement A stone model of the typodont was then measured n=75 times by both digital and physical measurement and these measurements were compared to the gold standard. To assess precision, patient models (n=27) were measured five times each by each method and assessed via an intraclass correlation coefficient.
