ASCFS Panel: Beyond the Cephalic Index: How Should We Really Be Measuring Our Synostosis Outcomes?
Chairs: Richard Hopper, MD
Mark Urata, MD
Presenters: David Khechoyan, MD, Baylor University School of Medicine
Derek Steinbacher, MD, Yale University School of Medicine
Jesse Taylor, MD, Unniversity of Pennsylvania
Albert Woo, MD, Washington University

Changes in health care have increased the importance of quality outcome measures. Limited shape outcome measures such as the cephalic index are no longer sufficient to meet the need of assessment of performance.

This panel will consist of short presentations on digital shape outcome analysis for single suture synostosis. The presentations will be followed by a facilitated panel DISCUSSION and audience interaction.

Learners will be able to understand the current state of digital analysis of shape, and participate in a DISCUSSION of which outcome measures best reflect surgical performance, and which measures should become the standard of evaluation for future research and clinical outcome reports.
