- Print digital cephalograms on photo glossy paper
- Provide diagnostic quality cephalograms in grayscale for each level of evaluation, A, A1 and B.
- All cephalograms should be of the same dpi and scale.( 8-bit grayscale scanned cephalogram JPEG images with medium compression recommended with appropriate cropping and rotation)
- Examinees with direct capture digital x-ray machines should retain the native resolution of their system. (example: if your digital panoramic machine captures an 8-bit grayscale, 500x1200 pixel image, retain image in this way)
- All records should be properly standardized, oriented and processed.
- Lateral cephalograms must show as much anatomy as possible, especially in vital landmark areas, for each level of evaluation.
- The soft tissue profile should be visible on lateral cephalograms.
- Posterior-Anterior (PA) or sub-mental vertex cephalograms should be included in the case presentation when diagnostically appropriate.
- The name of the doctor, practice or school should not be visible on any record.
- Affix an ABO record identification label to all hard copy records.
