Ultrasound image of human masseter muscle related to bite force, electromyography, facial morphology, and occlusal factors.

Abstract

The thickness of the human masseter muscle, corresponding approximately to a cross-section at the most bulky part of the superficial portion, was measured by ultrasound scanning at three sites 1 cm apart. The study included 13 women, 21-28 yr of age, with a minimum of 24 teeth and without craniomandibular disorders. Ultrasonography produced a well-defined… (More)
