Morphometric Analysis of Mandibula with MDCT Method in Turkish Population

Introduction: The temporamandibular joint with the temporal bone allows the mandibular to move, which facilitates the chewing and digestion of food. In this study, it was aimed to measure the morphometric parameters of the mandibles in the Turkish population and to evaluate the effectiveness of measurements in gender determination. Method: The study was performed on 100 individuals (50 females-50 males) who were scanned with Multidetector Computed Tomography (MDCT) and applied to the Department of Radiology, Konya Education and Research Hospital, Health Sciences University. Individuals ranging in age from 20 to 80 were included in the study. Results: In our study, 7 different parameters of mandibula were measured and mean values were determined. We investigated whether statistically significant differences exist between men and women. Conclusion: In conclusion, we think that some values of the mandibular obtained in our study will constitute a reference range in Turkish society. We believe that these intervals will assist surgeons dealing with the jaw and face region and radiologists for diagnosis.
