Normative values of pediatric skull circumference, cranial index, and braincase volume would inform multiple disciplines including neurosurgery, plastic surgery and anthropology. Semi-automated methods exist for obtaining these data but are time consuming and require expertise. We report on a new method for automated extraction of in vivo measures of pediatric crania based on x-ray computed tomography scans (CT). Data were obtained from a clinical image repository for pediatric populations in whom no pathology was noted. The automated process showed good agreement with semi-automated measures, although there was a small bias for both braincase volume and circumference. We developed an open source program to automatically extract measures of skull circumference, cranial index, and braincase volume that are likely to prove useful in multiple disciplines.
