AIM : To do morphometric analysis on supraorbital notch and foramen.
OBJECTIVE :To find the occurrence of supraorbital notch or foramen and also distance between supraorbital notch or foramen from glabella.
MATERIALS :Skulls, Survey sheet, vernier calliper.
BACK GROUND : In this research the morphometric analysis of the supraorbital notches and SOF will be studied in 70 dry human skulls from the Anatomy Department of Saveetha Dental College. A clear knowledge regarding the supraorbital notches and foramina is essential for clinicians to avoid the injury of neurovascular bundle passing through the same.
REASON :I was interested in this topic as I wanted to know the reason for the difference in structure in different individuals and also I wanted to know the distance of this structure from glabella.
