BMCC 5201 - Craniofacial Complex (10 Credit Hours)



The course provides students with the foundation and up-to-date knowledge of the development and functional anatomy of the craniofacial complex. The course of craniofacial complex also presents anatomical basis of common clinical problems that affect the craniofacial complex, prenatal and postnatal insults to the development of human craniofacial complex and how these lead to abnormalities that require treatment. In addition, the course describes the basics of advanced imaging in the form of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), explain important challenging concepts in dental radiography, and provides students with anatomical basis of interpretation of normal and pathological radiological features. Lectures correlate the development and anatomy of the craniofacial complex to clinical problems, and also tie the regional approach of laboratory anatomy to systemic physiological anatomy. Students dissect the head region and the superficial and deep structures of the neck region. Models and movies of prosected materials supplement the cadaver dissection.
