Cone Beam Dental CT, Case Synopsis

  1. 1. i-CAT CONE BEAM DENTAL CT at MAHAJAN IMAGING CASE SYNOPSIS: TESTIMONY OF STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY DR. ADITYA PATNEY, MDSCONSULTANT MAXILLOFACIAL AND DENTAL RADIOLOGIST 1
  2. 2. • A 24 year old female was referred to us for an overall evaluation of the maxillofacial region. She presented with facial asymmetry & dental malocclusion 2
  3. 3. • i-CAT™ CBCT scanning of maxilla and mandible was performed for evaluation and assessment of the dentition, jaws and condyles. An ultra low radiation dose scan was done 3
  4. 4. Tru-PAN™ panoramic reconstruction demonstratedimpacted 28, 36, 38 and 46 4
  5. 5. • Perceptible asymmetry was observed in comparison of the two hemimandibles with the right side evidently larger in the body and angle regions. 5
  6. 6. • True 3D distance measurement was performed with i-CAT s/w in the angle region bilaterally to confirm the same (Right side: 30.41mm, left side: 24.78mm). 6
  7. 7. • Hawk beak morphology of the condyles was visualized bilaterally and the joint space was found to be increased on both the sides 7
  8. 8. • Remarkable flattening of the articular surface of left condylar head was observed• These features were suggestive of condylar hypoplasia 8
  9. 9. • 36 was impacted closer to the lingual cortex as compared to the buccal cortex. The mandibular canal appeared to be buccal to the tooth. 9
  10. 10. • 46 was impacted almost in the middle of the buccolingual extension of the mandible with the mandibular canal coursing in proximity to the roots. 10
