Canaray 184003

1. Slight reduction in size of post-surgical lesion since prior scan

The prior scan (Canaray Case 154442, dated 8 May 2017, shown in redscale) was overlaid on the current scan (shown in greyscale). Areas without any red color in these overlays are regions in which the lesion has reduced in size due to bone infill, and appear pure greyscale. This suggests that the post-surgical lesion is diminishing in size, and that progressive healing of the lesion is occurring. No signs of recurrence of the former lesion are radiographically evident.

Healing post-treatment appearance of posterior left mandibular body

These cross-sectional images demonstrate the healing bone pattern in the post-surgical region in the posterior left mandible. A persistent post-surgical defect is present at the alveolar crest at site 38, but no signs of active pathology or recurrence are present.

2. Unfilled MB2 canal of tooth 26

The periapical periodontal ligament space of the mesiobuccal root of the endodontically-treated tooth 26 is widened. The existing obturation is laterally positioned within the mesiobuccal root and extends to the radiographic apex. An unfilled MB2 canal may be present. The overall radiographic appearance may be suggestive of a persistent periapical lesion secondary to the presence of the unobturated MB2 canal.

3. Palatal exostoses in left maxilla

Mild exostoses composed of cortical bone are present in the left posterior maxilla, at the level of the alveolar crest. This is a non-significant incidental finding.

4. Calcified stylohyoid ligament

The left stylohyoid ligament is partially calcified. This is an incidental finding with no significance.
