The aim of the current study was to topographically determine the anatomical location of the mandibular foramen and respective lingula in dry human mandibles and to establish whether it bears a relationship with cephalic index
of the respective crania.
As the means of head length, width and cephalic index
in girls and boys students were shown in Table II, there were significant difference between those of the girls and boys.
VCI--Vertical cephalic index
, respectively the ratio of the maximum height of the head to its maximum length was calculated according to the formulae:
of Garung Community of Nepal- An anthropometric study.
The most important of cephalometric dimension are length and width of head that with them determine cephalic index
The most important of cephalometric dimension are height and weigh of head that with them determine cephalic index
By noticing, the effect of racial, ethnic and geographical factors on head dimensions and lack of documented research in this area, for the first time, this study was done to determine the cephalic index
and types of head shapes in 17 -20 years old native Fars male in Gorgan- north of Iran.
Head Shape Cephalic Index
Range 1 Dolichocephalic <75.0 2 Mesocephalic 75.0-79.9 3 Brachycephalic 80.0-84.9 4 Hyperbrachycephalic 85.0-89.9 Statistical Analysis
The skull index or cephalic index
of Zovawk was 53.56[+ or -]0.11, whereas it was 38.23[[+ or -] or -]0.85 in donkey (Zhu et al., 2014), 46.12[+ or -]0.12 cm in blackbuck (Choudhary and Singh, 2015b), 46.51[+ or -]0.29 cm in dromedary camel (Choudhary et al., 2016) and 70.56[+ or -]0.22 in Indian wild pig (Choudhary et al., 2017).
 conducted the study of cephalic index
in Gujarat region.
The variables cephalic index
, facial index, nasal index, intercanthal index, and auricular index were calculated.
--Scapes slightly longer, extending past posterior lateral corner of head (SI 77.77); head suborbicular, cephalic index
90.00; clypeus convex, anterior border "v" shaped with partial longitudinal carina on the upper part; mandibles with 7 teeth, covered with fine striae (MI 48.33); body strongly sculptured by foveolae; fourth abdominal segment slightly rough with fine hairs scattered on dorsum; hairs lengths ranges from 0.03-0.20 mm ...
