  • Figure 1
    3D CT facial reconstruction

    3D CT facial reconstruction reveals an absence of a normal oral cavity (arrowhead).

     
    Area of Interest: Education; Head and neck; Musculoskeletal soft tissue; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    3D CT cranial bone reconstruction in front and lateral views
     

    3D CT cranial bone frontal reconstruction shows complete fusion of the mandible (arrowhead) with the maxilla (asterisk) and the zygomatic arch (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Anatomy; Bones; Education; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    3D CT cranial bone lateral reconstruction reveals similar findings to figure 2A.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Education; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Coronal facial bone CT reconstruction

    Hypoplastic mandibular condyles (arrows), especially the right one, are observed in this coronal facial bone CT reconstruction.

     
    Area of Interest: Musculoskeletal bone; Musculoskeletal system; Paediatric; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Axial facial bone CT
     

    Axial facial bone CT demonstrates the teeth of the upper dental arch in a central location (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Musculoskeletal bone; Musculoskeletal system; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Axial facial bone CT demonstrates the teeth of the lower dental arch in a central location (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Education; Head and neck; Musculoskeletal bone; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Coronal facial bone CT reconstruction

    A disruption of the bone continuity in the midline of the hard palate due to a cleft palate is seen in this coronal facial bone CT reconstruction (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Anatomy; Bones; Education; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    3D CT cranial bone reconstruction after the surgery
     

    3D CT cranial bone reconstruction after the surgery in front view shows an appropriate separation of the maxilla, the mandible and the zygomatic arch.

     
    Area of Interest: Bones; Education; Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    3D CT cranial bone reconstruction after the surgery in upper view demonstrates similar findings to figure 6a.
