Objective: This study aimed to reveal the length, width, area, and perimeter measurements of foramen ovale (FO) with excessive bone count and correlation status. 

Methods: On basis cranii externa of crania, a metric scale was put in a place near to FO. Each FO was photographed with a metric scale, and length, width, area, and perimeter of FO were calculated by using the Image J software program. 

Results: The average values of the length, width, area, and perimeter of the FO are 7.05±1.43 mm, 3.30±1.24 mm, 15.68±9.51 mm2, and 20.89±6.16 mm on the right side, and 6.83±1.53 mm, 3.30±1.34 mm, 15.61±8.73 mm2, and 21.00±6.41 mm on the left side, respectively. 

Conclusion: The fact that the number of measured bones in this study is quite high and the perimeter and area measurement parameters in the study can make this study unique compared with other studies. Thus, this study can shed light on clinical studies.
