Sample text

The parotid gland and parapharyngeal space become visible at this level. Lateral to the pterygoid and temporal muscles, the upper part of the masseter becomes visible, located medial to the zygomatic arch. More inferiorly, the masseter presents as a muscular band lateral to the mandible. The lower head of the lateral pterygoid muscle is shown, as is the medial pterygoid, which is situated on the medial side of the lateral pterygoid plate and inserts into it the angle of the mandible. Part of the temporal muscle is visible in front of the lateral pterygoid inserting into the medial part of the coronoid process of the mandible.

Internal jugular v. sternocleidomastoid m. scalenu mediu m. longissimus capitis m. minor occipital n. deep cervical v. semispinalis cervicis m. trapezius m. 14. Axial section at the level of tongue and floor of the mouth. Note the presence of anterior belly of digastric muscle on the left. Posterolateral to the mylohyoid muscle, the submandibular glands present as round structures with the density of muscle since they contain less fat than the parotid gland (figs. 15). The pharyngeal musculature and the palatine tonsils form a homogeneous mass in which the various structures cannot be identified.

The splenius and scalenus medius muscles are visible directly lateral to the vertebra on both sides. More posterior the semispinatus capitis, longissimus capitis, semispinalis cervicis muscles and the deep cervical vein can be identified as posterior neck structures separated by the ligamentum nuchae. The tortuous structure on both sides of the spinous process might be the longitudinal vertebral venous sinus. The hyoid bone, with the body and the two greater horns is visible in the section slightly below the mandible (figs.
