The Authorized ABFO No. 2 Photomacrographic Scale
Designed by the American Board of Forensic Odontology (ABFO), this scale has
become the standard for bitemark measurement and photography. The incorporation
of three circles is useful in helping to compensate for distortion resulting from oblique
camera angles. Graduations are all metric except for the width of the legs, which are
25cm wide. The 1cm division lines are traced and extended across the photographic
print to grid an image. Measurements within the image are then made relative to
these inscribed 1cm grid lines to compensate for any distortion resulting from nonparallelism
between the film and the object planes.
