Description

The complex anatomy of the cranium and facial bones can be intimidating.  the task of identifying these structures can be simplified. It is important to understand the normal anatomy of the cranium and facial bones to identify pathologic disorders and injuries that may occur within this area.

This course demonstrates the normal anatomy of the cranium , facial bones  , temporomandibular join , paranasal sinuses , and the orbit .
