Abstract

RADIOGRAPHIC AND 3D CT (VRT) SCAN EVALUATION OF INCISIVE FISSURE IN A PLASTINATED FETUS

Shilpi Tiwari, Nandlal B

Incisive fissure is a well known anatomical structure in human palate. The term incisive fissure, given by Wood et al, was previously regarded as incisive suture. Incisive fissure on a radiograph is seen as bilateral radiolucent line on the palate during early fetal life. It disappears with age and generally cannot be seen on the palatal and nasal aspect of the adult skull. Plastination is a technic of preparing a dry, colored, nontoxic, durable, odorless, natural looking specimen. A human fetus of gestational age 24 weeks was plastinated, radiographs and 3D CT (VRT) Scan of the fetus was taken. The obtained images were studied and results were drawn.
