|Abstract: ||In the present study, the foramina and bony canals located at the lingual side of the mandibular midline were morphometrically characterised using macro-and micro-anatomical dissection of 50 dry and 12 intact human cadaver mandibles. Another 10 mandibular specimens were imaged using a 9.4 Tesla MRI unit to evaluate the true canal content. Results showed that out of 50 dry mandibles, only 1 was lacking a true midline foramen. 36 specimens had a single foramen and canal. The average canal length was 6.5 mm. (SD 2.4 mm), with 72% of the canals running downwards to the buccal side with an average slope of -37.5 degrees (SD 20.1). Microanatomical observations and high resolution MRI indicated a clear neurovascular bundle in both superior and inferior genial spinal foraminae. For the superior canal, the content derived from lingual artery and nerve. The inferior canal content had a sublingual arterial branch, with mylohyoid nerve innervation.|
