This last subjects were classified as without VFE when Receiver Operative Characteristics of ECDT was made.
Receiver Operative Characteristics of ECDT was made with the second evaluation of subjects.
ECDT was clinically and statistically different in patients qualified through QA-VFE in both, first and second evaluation (Table 3).
The ECDT is represented by six of nine clinical variables used to facial evaluation, and has the ability to discriminate patients with severe VFE.
Additionally, it will allows the use of the ECDT as a gold standard in sagital malocclusions, comparing to previous studies or evaluating the need and reproducibility of new cephalometric analysis (18).
Within this study, the experts considered that the ECDT could be used as a gold standard for vertical facial excess.
