Abstract

In 82 practically healthy urban youths and 86 girls of the Podillia region of Ukraine, when distributed into different craniotypes, reliable regression models of computational-tomographic dimensions of thalamus were constructed depending on anthropometric and somatotypological parameters with a determination coefficient greater than 0.6. In mesocephalic boys, of 4 possible models, 3 were constructed with a determination coefficient from 0.731 to 0.938; and in brachycephals boys only 1 model (the determination coefficient is 0.620). In girls-dolichocephals and brachycephals all 4 models have been constructed (accordingly, the determination coefficient is from 0.750 to 0.926 and from 0.760 to 0.925); and in mesocephalic girls only 2 models (the determination coefficient is 0.640 and 0.690). The built models most often included: in mesocephalic boys – the circumferential dimensions of the body and the thickness of skin and fat folds (by 25.0%); in dolichocephals girls – body diameters (26.9%) and evenly cephalometric indices, total, longitudinal, circumferential sizes of the body and width of distal epiphyses of long limb bones (by 11.5%); in mesocephalic girls, the thickness of skin and fat folds (30.8%) and the width of distal epiphyses of long limb bones (23.1%); in girls brachycephals – the circumferential dimensions of the body (30.8%), body diameters (26.9%), and the thickness of skin and fat folds (19.2%).
