Anterior nasal spine (ANS) is the most forward point of the maxilla and is naturally protected by the surrounding midfacial bones. Fractures of ANS are rare, but still occur in isolation or in association with midface fractures. Such fractures may either be ignored by patients or may go undetected. Lateral skull view and computed tomography is used for diagnosis of ANS fracture. In this article, an innovative, rapid, simple, cost-effective imaging of ANS with less radiation by Radiovisiography, a dental digital imaging system is discussed.
