dc.description.abstract The study objective to determine the skull morphology of Sudanese and adult sudanese male and female. Data was taken from the 100 CT images of normal skull 53 male, 47 female ( ≥ 18 years), from Khartoum Teaching Hospital . The duration of the study is 6 months, from July 2011 to January 2012. According to the classification of skull shape and size (cephalic index) to three categories dolicocephalic, mesocephalic and brachycephalic, the dominant appearance in Sudanese skull was found mesocephalic (average skull) 86.4%, dolicocephalic 83% but the brachycephalic was rare 30.42%. On the other hand, the skull width of Sudanese was measured 133.9 mm and the length was measured 177.2 mm. The study evealed that, skull morphology of Sudanese male was found dolicocephalic 49.0% and female was found mesoceohalic 46.8%. The skull width of Sudanese male was measured 135 mm and female 132 mm. Lastly, the skull length of Sudanese male 180.7 mm and female 173.1 mm. Cephalic index of Sudanese was mesocephalic, this means axiolateral oblique projection “ Law method ” for the mastoids or the TMJs requires 15º of head rotation. en_US
