ABSTRACT Objective: No study has investigated the relationship between maxillary sinus findings and skeletal malocclusion based on cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). The objectives of this study were to determine the relationship between the frequency of sinus findings and patients' skeletal malocclusion classification. Materials and Method: A total of 105 CBCT scans were examined and divided into 3 groups according to skeletal classification. Two experienced observers reviewed the CBCT… Expand

EVALUATION OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAXILLARY SINUS PATHOLOGIES AND OSTIUM DIMENSION : A RETROSPECTIVE CONE BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY
ÖZ Objective: Maxillary sinus ostium is the top section of the medial wall the and is hence poorly placed from the point of view of free drainage; it opens into the narrow ethmoidal infundibulum,Expand

TLDR
A high percentage of the CBCTs made for orthodontic diagnostic purposes exhibit incidental maxillary sinus findings not associated with the primary indication. Expand

TLDR
For the majority of the roots projecting on the sinus cavity in panoramic radiographs, no vertical protrusion into the Sinus was observed in CT images, and Roots that did protrude into thesinus in the CT showed a protrusion length that was much shorter than the projection length appearance using panoramic radiography.

TLDR
Evaluating the location, nature, and occurrence of incidental findings in maxillofacial structures on 3-dimensional cone-beam volumetric scans for dental diagnostic purposes and looking for associations between these findings and symptoms in orthodontic patients found them to be correlated with clinical signs and symptoms. Expand
Radiologic assessment of diseased mucosa of the maxillary sinus after functional endoscopic sinus surgery.
TLDR
It is suggested that removal of obstructive lesion in the ostiomeatal area might be beneficial in a seemingly early symptomatic improvement, but complete healing of the maxillary sinus mucosa as assessed by OMU CT might take longer than 12 months. Expand
Loss of pulp sensitivity and pain as the first symptoms of a Ewing's sarcoma in the right maxillary sinus and alveolar process: report of a case.
TLDR
This case report describes the diagnosis and treatment of a Ewing's sarcoma in the right maxillary sinus and alveolar bone of a 19-year-old female patient, which consisted of initial chemotherapy, hemimaxillectomy, and postsurgical chemoradiotherapy. Expand
Variation of patterns of malocclusion by site of pharyngeal obstruction in children.
TLDR
Different sites of obstruction of the upper airway due to enlarged lymphoid tissue are associated with different types of dental malocclusion, relevant to orthodontic and surgical decision making in these mouth-breathing patients. Expand
Paranasal sinuses on MR images of the brain: significance of mucosal thickening.
TLDR
It is concluded that mucosal thickening of up to 3 mm is common and lacks clinical significance in asymptomatic patients and is thought to be a normal variant, possibly a function of the physiologic nasal cycle. Expand

TLDR
In essence, CT helps to support a clinical diagnosis but it should not be interpreted out of context, and it is therefore vital that doctors communicate the clinical picture to their radiological colleagues, and that they learn to interpret the radiographs. Expand
Prevalence of incidental abnormalities on computed tomographic scans of the paranasal sinuses.
TLDR
The high frequency of reported radiologic abnormalities in asymptomatic patients highlights the importance of correlation with the clinical presentation when interpreting computed tomographic scans of the paranasal sinuses. Expand
Facial morphology and obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
Patients' facial morphology influences OSA and facial types including brachyfacial and mesofacial patients had greater AHI, while Pattern III patients showed a lower index, according to a facial index that considers the proportion between facial width and height. Expand
