Important anatomical landmarks are the infraorbital foramen, the lower border of the zygoma and the zygomatic arch of the temporal bone. -18 Maxilla (upper jaw) With the patient looking straight ahead, the infraorbital foramen with ➞ ST-2 is located on the maxilla, directly below the pupil. The foramen lies 1 finger-width below the infraorbital ridge. By palpating inferiorly from there, it can be felt below the maximal curvature of the ridge, in a small depression that is often sensitive to pressure.

Its movement can easily be palpated by gently opening and closing the mouth. ➞ ST-7 is located in a depression anterior to the joint and directly inferior to the zygomatic arch. This depression is situated in the mandibular incisure, which is formed by the coronoid and condylar processes of the mandible. By opening the mouth, the palpating finger resting on ➞ ST-7 is ‘lifted’ out of the depression by the condyloid process sliding anteriorly.
