Canaray 138314

1. Stafne defect with localized fracture

A well-defined thickly corticated indentation is present at the lingual surface of the inferior lingual aspect of the left mandibular ramus, in the region of the antegonial notch. This entity has not had any effect upon the inferior alveolar nerve canal, and most likely represents a Stafne defect. A discontinuity is visible at the inferior border of the entity, and is suggestive of a localized fracture of the thinned inferior border of the mandible.

Left mandibular nerve inferior to tooth 38

The left inferior alveolar nerve canal passes along the inferior surfaces of the roots of the horizontally impacted tooth 38. This tooth has not had any effect upon tooth 37. The follicle surrounding the crown of the tooth appears normal. The inferior alveolar canal has been locally inferiorly displaced by the mesial root apex of tooth 38.

2. Resorbing deciduous root fragments around tooth 35

Two small resorbing deciduous root fragments are present at the mesial and distal aspect of the root of tooth 35. These resorbing fragments have not had any effect on the surrounding structures, and are non-significant incidental findings.

3. Resorbing deciduous root fragments around tooth 45

Two resorbing deciduous root fragments are present in the alveolar process in the region mesial and distal to the apical third of the root of tooth 45. This is a non-significant incidental finding. The bone surrounding these fragments appears normal radiographically.

4. Mild mucositis of both maxillary sinuses

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

5. Physiologic intracranial calcification

A midline physiologic calcification is present intracranially. This is an incidental finding with no significance.

6. Atherosclerosis of internal carotid arteries

Calcifications are present in the parasellar segments of the internal carotid arteries. This represents an incidental finding with no proven clinical significance.

7. Calcified cornu of thyroid cartilage

The left horn of the thyroid cartilage is partially calcified. This is an incidental finding with no clinical significance.

8. Mild cervical degenerative joint disease

Small osteophytes and mild subchondral sclerosis are present on the articulating surfaces of the cervical vertebrae. This is suggestive of the presence of mild cervical degenerative joint disease, which is an incidental finding with no clinical significance.
