Skull CT anatomy

The Sagittal suture is the line where the right and left parietal bone are in contact.

The Coronal suture is the line where the parietal bone frontal bone and are in contact.

The Lambdoid suture is a line where the parietal bone occipital bone and are in contact.

The point lambda is the point where joins lambdoid sutures and the Sagittal suture.

The bregma is the point where joins Coronal Sagittal suture and suture.

Images are shown from the vertex to the base of the skull
