Noncontrast maxillofacial CT scan reconstructed with a bone filter, two coronal images and an axial image.
In the coronal image to the left from the posterior nasal cavities, the orange arrows point to the point posterior ends of the inferior nasal conchae. In the coronal image to the right from the anterior nasal cavities, the gap between the yellow arrows is the right hiatus semilunaris.

Question: There is a bony gap in the medial wall of each maxillary sinus/lateral wall of each nasal cavity between the green arrows. What is the name of this bony gap?
