A V-shaped hyperreflectivity of the outer nuclear layer was seen with OCT imaging, overlying discontinuities of the ellipsoid zone and interdigitation zone in smaller lesions.
The maxillary to mandibular tooth size relationship is important to achieve ideal overjet, overbite, and occlusal interdigitation following orthodontic treatment and is often referred to as the "seventh key" to an ideal occlusion [1].
The cause is commonly related to the fusion (or progressive calcification) of the midpalatal suture and the increased interdigitation of craniofacial sutures, making it more resistant to split as age progresses [3, 4].
Outer photoreceptor structures, such as the inner-outer segment layer and the interdigitation between the photoreceptor outer segments and the apical retinal pigment epithelium, have a normal appearance.
The International Nomenclature OCT Consensus refers to the IS/OS junction as the ellipsoid zone and the COST as the interdigitation zone [45], and thus we use this nomenclature in the remainder of this review.
Placentas are composed of fetal and maternal portions, which are localized closer to the fetus and to the uterus, respectively, and can be classified according to distinct parameters, such as gross anatomy, type of fetal-maternal interface and fetal maternal interdigitation (12,13,17).
There is interdigitation between the proximal 2nd through 5th metacarpals (arrow) with no evidence of cortical destruction.
The dental anomalies like these may present problems during the orthodontic treatment, because the altered mesiodistal dimension of one tooth may cause discrepancies in management of space as well as interdigitation of opposing teeth in dental arch, hence interfering in settling of occlusion.
