Characterization Of Foramen Magnum For The Sudanese Using Computed Tomography

Abstract

The study was done to characterize foramen magnum using CTs and effect of diameter of base of the skull and height of patient on the diameter of foramen magnum.

50 patients (60% males and 40% females) were selected all the diagnosis as normal cranial CTs.

This study was done in Abdoon SidAhmed Diagnostic Center and

Alfaisal Specialized Hospital during the period from January to Marsh 2016.

This study found the mean anterior posterior diameter FM in male

subjects as 37.41mm (±3.27) and that of the female subjects 35.8mm (±2.88) width of the foramen magnum in male subjects was 30.93mm(±2.95) and that of the female subjects was 28.8mm (±1.96)result that the FM 0f males the graeter than females. The results showed that there was a weak correlation between foramen magnum and base of skull dimension the R2=0.177.

The results also showed that there was a weak correlation between

foramen magnum and high of patients the R2=0.023.

The study, as well, showed that there was a weak correlation between foramen magnum and both bass of skull and high of patients although the correlation between the foramen magnum and bass of skull is relatively stronger than between foramen magnum and high of patients.
