Abstract

The location of optic canal and the intracranial segment of optic nerve is difficult because of the high possibility of the deficiency of optic protuberance as well as its complex relationship to sphenoid and ethmoidal sinus. A new method of locating the optic canal and a comprehensive analysis of it and the structures around is of great importance.
