Objective: The cranial base harbours numerous foramina, and the anatomical properties of the foramina are crucial in clinical interventions. The purpose of the current study is to evaluate possible asymmetries regarding the middle and posterior cranial fossae foramina using 3D reconstructions of high-resolution computed tomography (CT) images.
