Fracture (mandibular / jaw) 0005
3D Volume Rendering Technique (VRT) reconstruction from CT scans of a Blainville's Beaked Whale (Mesoplodon densirostris) head showing multiple bilateral longitudinal and comminuted mandibular fractures (arrows). Necropsy of the beaked whale confirmed the fractures. Adjacent contusions on the ventral surface are consistent with the underlying fractures (related report).
