Method used in dental casts to project the extent of maxillary skeletal expansion required. Blue line, maxillary width, and red line, mandibular width measured with a digital caliper; Mandibular width is defined as the distance between the right and left gingiva tissue projected at the level of first mandibular molar’s furcation. In this case, the transverse deficiency in models accounts for 6.5 mm
