AIM OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the tongue volume in patients with different malocclusions by using three different methods. MATERIALS AND METHOD: A total sample of 30 individuals between the age group of 1 6 to 25 years was selected from the Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics of Madha Dental College and Hospital. The group comprised of skeletal Class I - 10 subjects (control group), Class II-10 subjects, Class III - 10 subjects (Study group). Patients were screened and identified based on skeletal malocclusion. Those individuals were subjected to various analysis like MRI, CBCT, and MORPHOMETRY. RESULTS: The test statistics show whether the test results are significant or not. The chi -square test was applied to all three methods. Asymptotic significance is seen. MRI is highly significant than CBCT and MORPHOMETRY. All three KRUSKAL WALLIS TEST are significant as the P-value is less than 0.05. CONCLUSION: The p-value is highly significant in MRI, hence it is proved that MRI is more accurate than CBCT and MORPHOMETRY. MRI is more authentic than other methods of this study due to the precise location of soft t issue points.
