1. Sialolith in the right submandibular gland

There is a well-defined round, lamellar radiopacity present in the right submandibular region medial to the mandibular angle. Internally, this is composed of multiple radiolucent centers surrounded by laminated calcification. This is suggestive of a sialolith of the submandibular duct. This is a non-significant finding if the patient does not experience any symptoms related to the salivary gland.

Axial views of the posterior right mandible

These axial cross-sectional images demonstrate the presence of a well-defined,lamellar radiopaque entity medial to the posterior right mandible. There is no evidence of any damage to the adjacent structure.

Mesiodistal views of the soft tissue medial to the posterior right mandible

These mesiodistal cross-sectional images demonstrate that the radiopacity in the posterior right mandibular body is located in the soft tissue medial to the mandible at the submandibular gland area. This entity has not caused any effects on its surrounding structures.

Buccolingual views of the posterior right mandible

These buccolingual cross-sectional images demonstrate that the sialolith in the posterior right mandible appears medial to the mandible and is not continuous with the lingual cortical plate. There is no evidence of osseous pathology in this region. The buccal and lingual cortical plates appear normal.

2. Right palatine tonsillolith

A tonsillolith is present in the right palatine tonsil. This is an incidental finding with no significance because tonsilloliths exfoliate spontaneously.
