A combination of SMD and ULBT only improved the Se of ULBT when compared with the latter alone. In another study, Khan et al. [77] compared the labiomandibular morphometry with cervico mandibular morphometry in order to test whether ULBT had a positive correlation with HMD, thyrosternal distance and the mandibular length. A significant agreement was found between the ULBT, HMD and mandibular length and the laryngoscopic view but no such agreement was found between thyrosternal distance and the laryngoscopic view.
