Mandible thickness was measured as in Figure 1.

Left/Right differences for metrics of the hip and skull. The vector column indicates the direction of the magnitude difference. The Diff % column shows the Left/Right differences as a percentage of the mean: (abs(xlxr)/mean(xr,xl)) × 100%. The significance of the paired t-test is indicated. See Supporting Information Figure 1 for radiographs showing the endpoints used for each measurement.
