The mandibular incisive canal (MIC) is an anterior extension of the mandibular canal from the mental foramen, which contains a neurovascular bundle (Mardinger et al.
After this classification, all the radiographs were analyzed in order to find which of them had at least one visible mandibular incisive canal.
