A computerized system for mensuration of dental casts, developed at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading was tested against a conventional manual method and a computer controlled reflex microscope. Systematic errors, calibration, and handling aspects are discussed. Results showed that the computerized system provided data which while statistically different, were clinically comparable with the same measurements carried out using conventional manual or digitizing techniques. The results indicated that future research is required with respect to object illumination for all indirect techniques.
