Fig. 21 (a, b) Coronal CT scans. (a) A large agger nasi cell (note the intimate relation between agger nasi cell and uncinate process). (b) Transition of the agger nasi cell into a lacrimal cell (note again that the floor of this cell is shaped by the uncinate process that is now more visible). Yellow arrows: frontal process of the maxilla. Blue arrows: orbital plate of the frontal bone. Green arrows: lacrimal bone. Note in (a) the free border of the middle turbinate is not visible or adjacent to the agger nasi cell, and the lateral wall of that cell is made up by the frontal recess of the maxilla.

Yellow arrows: sutura frontomaxillaris. Blue arrow: sutura frontonasalis. Note the difference in height between the superior border of the lacrimal and ethmoidal bone! This difference results in a bend (in a) or even a notch (in b) of the sutura frontoethmoidalis (incisura lamina orbitalis, ossis ethmoidalis, or lamina papyracea – purple line), ANT denotes anterior (Courtesy of Samuel Márquez, PhD) Fig. 18 View of medial wall of orbit.
