Abstract

Background: Asterion is identified as the connection point of sutura parietomastoidea, sutura occipitomastoidea, and sutura lamb doidea. The location of asterion, which is primarily preferred as a landmark during posterolateral surgical approach for intracranial operations, shows many variables. The aim of this study was to identify the surface location of the asterion and determine the distances between intracranial anatomical structures and asterion.
