BACKGROUND Although cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images of the maxillofacial region allow the inspection of the entire volume of the maxillary sinus (MS), identifying anatomic variations and abnormalities in the image volume, this is frequently neglected by oral radiologists when interpreting images of areas at a distance from the dentoalveolar(More)
INTRODUCTION Images and clinical characteristics of some lesions may lead to misinterpretations between diseases of endodontic and non-endodontic origin. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas occur in extranodal sites and may arise primarily in the oral cavity or jaws. METHODS A case of lymphoma associated with the roots of teeth #21-23 in a 38-year-old woman is(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of periapical radiography (PR) and cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging in the detection of the root canal configuration (RCC) of human premolars. METHODS PR and CBCT imaging of 114 extracted human premolars were evaluated by 2 oral radiologists. RCC was recorded according(More)
INTRODUCTION The study objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging for the detection of lateral canals (LCs) in endodontically treated premolars. METHODS Two evaluators classified 80 extracted premolars into 2 groups based on the absence (n = 40) or presence (n = 40) of LCs according to micro-computed(More)
