Cephalometric reference planes--sella nasion vs Frankfort horizontal

Ellis, III/McNamara, Jr.

Two anatomical planes, sella-nasion and Frankfort horizontal are commonly used in cephalometric evaluation. Both reference lines present advantages and disadvantages, and clinicians seem equally divided in their preference for using one over the other. To determine which of the two is more consistently accurate, this study compared measurements made using sella-nasion as the reference line with those made using Frankfort horizontal.
