Abstract: To determine the height and volume of the mandibular coronoid process (CP) by cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and to identify the presence of any correlations of these measurements with age, gender, facial type, and skeletal class. The sample consisted of 132 patients from a departmental routine patient base. After CBCT, CP height was determined using OnDemand 3D software (CyberMed, Seoul, Republic of Korea), and CP volume was obtained using ITK-SNAP 3.0 software (Cognitica, Philadelphia, PA). Measurements were subjected to analysis of covariance against facial type, skeletal class, gender, and age, with a significance level of 5%. CP height and volume were similar regardless of age, facial type, and skeletal class. However, the 2 measurements were statistically different regarding gender, with larger values for men than for women. These observations suggest that gender is the only factor influencing the height and volume of the CP
