The digastric triangle is a part of the neck that is in front of the head. The digastric muscle that runs through it gives it its name. The digastric triangle is made up of the jawbone (mandible) at the top, the middle of the neck in the middle, and the posterior belly of the digastric muscle at the bottom.

The digastric muscle is a pair of muscles with two bellies, one in the front and one in the back. The anterior belly of the digastric muscle comes from the inner surface of the mandible and attaches to the hyoid bone.

The posterior belly comes from the mastoid process of the temporal bone and attaches to the hyoid bone. The mylohyoid nerve and the facial nerve both connect to the digastric muscle.

The submandibular gland, the facial artery and vein, the hypoglossal nerve, the mylohyoid nerve, and the lingual nerve are some of the important parts of the digastric triangle. It is important for doctors to be able to diagnose and treat different diseases in the head and neck area.
