Reputed software engineering journals is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record. Cone Beam Computed Tomography produces distortion-free and accurate images of the craniofacial anatomy, and can be considered as a useful instrument to perform a correct diagnosis and treatment using a cephalometricanalysis. Now a days the 3D cephalometric analysis are made by adapting on 3D what was born on 2D, so it can be necessary to find a new technique that was born directly on 3D. Sixty-five Ricketts first skeletal classes were chosen in an archive of 700 CBCT acquisitions. 3 easily repeatable reference planes were found on each case and then 15 points were selected on the skull, for a total of 18 cephalometric points. Each point of these 65 patients creates a cloud of points that could represent the range of normality in the 3D space. The coordinates of each analyzed point presented a standard deviation between 0, 00 and 5, 64.
