Facial discordancy of craniofacial disorders & syndromes. From left to right: original facial surface, dysmorphogram of facial discordancy and norm-equivalent. From top to bottom: assessment of persons with mild Treacher-Collins syndrome, a Lysosomal Storage Disorder and a Parry-Romberg syndrome. A general note: eyes and areas in the face covered by hair, e.g. eyebrows, always contain 3D surface mesh-artifacts (due to limitations of current scanning technology) such that spurious outliers are visible in these areas. These are to be interpreted with caution.
