Table 2 Distance measurements of loop of the inferior alveolar nerve and the mandibular functional units

From: Three-dimensional analysis of the anterior loop of the inferior alveolar nerve in relation to the growth pattern of the mandibular functional subunit

Measurement Description
dAnt Distance from the most anterior point of the inferior alveolar nerve to pMF_V
(If there is no anterior curvature, dAnt is defined as “0”)
dInf Distance from the most inferior point of the inferior alveolar nerve to pMF_H
dPog Distance from the Pog to the pMcN
dRamus Distance from the SN to the Go
dBody Distance from the Go to the MF
dSymphysis Distance from the MF point to the Pog
