Accessory right anterior digastric muscles were found in three cadavers in the dissection lab of the Sanford School of Medicine during the 2012-2015 school years. These were dissected, photographed, measured, and then removed for weighing. Weights were used to hypothesize contractile forces for each muscle. It is important to continue to document these accessory muscles and their variations, as they are important landmarks in surgery and may be mistakenly identified on radiological scans.
