The craniofacial group in Seattle present a follow-up study of their prior publication evaluating, in a prospective fashion, the degree of normalization of head shape in a group of 235 children with positional plagiocephaly and/or brachycephaly (PPB), compared with a control group (167 unaffected, 70 with a degree of previously undiagnosed PPB).1,2 Children were evaluated at initial presentation (average 7 months of age) and 18 and 36 months of age using family surveys and 3D photo imaging. Automated analyses of flattening and symmetry were performed to generate an absolute asymmetry score, an oblique cranial
