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

T Peedikayil, N Wieselthaler

Abstract


This article highlights the importance of routinely reviewing the mandibular condyle on computerised tomography brain studies in a trauma setting,
that often extends to involve the mandibular condyles in the scan  parameters. We discuss 4 cases seen over the last 18 months at our institution, and review the relevant literature regarding paediatric mandibular fractures.
