Knowledge of normal suture anatomy and development is vital in order to understand abnormal suture development and to be able to distinguish sutures radiographically from normal anatomical structures and possible skull fractures. The anatomy of the sutures and synchondroses of 150 normal pediatric and adult patients was studied using high-resolution computerized tomography scanning. Sutures of both the calvaria and skull base were most accurately identified in axial and coronal high-resolution… CONTINUE READING
