1. An optical instrument for measuring crystal angles, as between crystal faces.
2. A radio receiver and directional antenna used as a system to determine the angular direction of incoming radio signals.

Future research should investigate if such thresholds exist (and if they are gender-specific) using the methods in the current study, which are representative of typical goniometric measures obtained in clinical settings.
Measurements were performed using standard goniometric techniques.

Reliability of goniometric measurement of ankle dorsiflexion in hemiparetic patients.
The continuous scanning from 10 to 80 (2[theta]) degrees in the vertical goniometric configuration was performed for all samples.
It includes references to accreditation, goniometric range of motion measures, pharmacology, a concussion assessment protocol, and the National Athletic Trainers' Association's Code of Ethics.
These instruments are based on goniometric setups for analyzing the angle-dependent electro-optical properties of LCDs and OLED displays in emission, reflection and transmission.
The end point for the active motion was determined by patient comfort and by capsular end-feel similarly to goniometric procedures (Boon and Smith, 2000).
A pre-intervention goniometric measurement of ankle dorsiflexion AROM was then taken.
