Is a Computer-Based Facial Dysmorphology Novel Analysis Ready for the Clinic?

Previously, we were able to demonstrate that the facial dysmorphology novel analysis technology was successful in recognizing the facial dysmorphology associated with targeted selected syndromes by processing 2D facial images. In this study we investigated the performance of the Facial Dysmorphology Novel Analysis technology by analyzing a random set of images of dysmorphic individuals affected with a random variety of syndromes.

Conclusions and future work
30%–40% of genetic disorders manifest craniofacial abnormalities. Facial analysis software can successfully assist medical professionals of different specialties in the research and investigation of multiple genetic syndromes characterized by dysmorphic features. Possible future applications may include usage of facial analysis software to complement molecular studies, such as whole exome sequencing, by automatic phenotyping.

Prader-Willi Syndrome: Toward Automated Identification of Phenotypic Differences

In Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), the two common etiologies are paternal deletion of chromosome 15q11-13 (~70% of affected persons) and maternal uniparental disomy 15 (UPD) (~25%). 73 persons are included in our retrospective study, 37 under the age of 8 (7 UPD, 30 deletion), and 36 above (15 UPD, 21 deletion). The R Matching package was used to match individuals based on gender and age. The results reveal that, in the younger age group, nasal base and mouth width are significantly reduced in UPD, while in the older individuals, inner canthal distance and ear length are larger in UPD.
