    More regarding the info from an EDS link on facial features in EDS -

    People with EDS have a tendency to have large almond shaped eyes - widely spaced, broad cheekbones, heart-shaped face, thinner lips and, sometimesattached earlobes.

    Perth Face Space Project

    Facial imaging testing - - a new research initiative

    Dr Mark Walters, cranio-maxo-facial specialist and Dr Gareth ?Beynam, Clinical Geneticist
    Western Australia are assembling a reference bank of young faces.

    They photograph in 3-D the faces and heads of kids from 1 month through to 25 years old
    study healthy youth for later illnesses -( too )

    digital photography with multiple lenses creates a virtual 3-D image

    They are looking for facial signatures or patterns of variation
    clues to predict the onset of rare diseases.

    The program filters out normal variance noise

    quick and efficient and gives reliable information
    Australia is hoping to develop and export this technology.
