Anatomy Monday: Paradoxic Curvature


This week is the last anatomy I’ll be showing from my book (Interpretation Basics of Cone Beam Computed Tomography).  It’s another aspect of the nasal cavity involving the middle concha. Paradoxic curvature is when the curve of the concha is towards the nasal septum instead of the lateral border of the nasal cavity.
