Nasion

Last revised by Dr Daniel J Bell on 05 Jul 2019

The nasion (also known as bridge of the nose) is the midline bony depression between the eyes where the frontal and two nasal bones meet, just below the glabella.

It is one of the skull landmarks: craniometric points for radiological or anthropological skull measurement.
