Coronal views of the paediatric mandibular condyle on computerised tomography brain (CTB) studies: An important review area

T Peedikayil, N Wieselthaler


This article highlights the importance of routinely reviewing the mandibular condyle on computerised tomography brain studies in a trauma setting,
