1. Soft tissue growth in anterior palate: rule out minor salivary gland neoplasm

There is a well-defined, sessile soft tissue growth located along the anterior hard palate, just left of the anatomic midline. This growth exhibits no effects on the underlying bone of the hard palate. The remainder of the palate appears within the range of normal. It should be noted that CBCT imaging has poor soft tissue contrast, and no further information can be derived from this scan. These findings could suggest the possibility of a minor salivary gland neoplasm, but biopsy with histopathologic correlation is necessary for a definitive diagnosis.

Axial views of the palate

These axial cross-sectional images demonstrate the presence of a soft tissue growth located along the left lateral aspect of the anterior palate, just medial to the maxillary left first premolar region.

Coronal views of the palate

These coronal cross-sectional images demonstrate the normal appearance of the osseous structures of the hard palate. The soft tissue growth has not caused any erosion of the underlying bone.

Sagittal views of the palate

These sagittal cross-sectional images demonstrate the sessile appearance of the soft tissue growth located in the anterior palate. The remainder of the soft tissue lining the palate exhibits a relatively uniform thickness.

2. Occlusal caries in tooth 17

Caries may be present within the occlusal aspect of the crown of tooth 17, which extends into dentin. Clinical correlation is necessary to substantiate this interpretation. This tooth appears otherwise normal, there are no signs of periapical or periradicular pathology.

3. Mild mucositis of both maxillary sinuses

Mild mucositis is present in both maxillary sinuses. This represents an incidental finding with no clinical significance.

4. Right palatine tonsilloliths

Tonsilloliths are present in the right palatine tonsil. This is an incidental finding with no clinical significance because tonsilloliths exfoliate spontaneously.
