Head and Neck - Head

Dissections of head and neck are more difficult to perform and comprehend due to the complex interrelationships between various structures. Also, the space available in each dissection is relatively small. The section begins with a brief outline of the surface landmarks and dermatomes. This is followed by the skeletal topography of the skull and cervical vertebra. The skull as a whole is presented in different views - frontal, occipital, lateral superior and basal. In addition, there is a chapter on the bony interior of the cranial cavity. Dissections include face and scalp, orbit, infratemporal fossa, salivary glands, nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, pharynx and oral cavity.
