Figure 2: Reference points for measurement. The tangential line to the body BT; the tangential line to the ramus RT and the perpendicular line from the ramus tangent to the higher part of the condylar head CO were drawn. Intersection of lines CO and RT produced the upper reference point. Intersection of lines RT and BT set up the lower reference point. The vertical distance from upper reference point to lower reference point on the ramus tangent represented the Ramal Vertical Dimension or ramus height
