To do morphometric analysis on supraorbital notch and foramen.


To find the occurrence of supraorbital notch or foramen and also distance between supraorbital notch or foramen from glabella.


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.


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.



Supraorbital notch, Supraorbital foramen, skulls, glabella, neurovascular bundle.
