1. Bone dysplasia and anterior left ramus is source of positive finding in bone scan
A localized zone of dysplastic bone is present in the anterior left ramus in the region adjacent to the inferior alveolar nerve canal. This dysplastic bone was partially captured in this scan. Areas of bone turnover such as this would produce positive findings in a nuclear medicine scan. Localized bone dysplasias are generally non-significant findings. No treatment is required.
Mesiodistal views of posterior third quadrant
These mesiodistal cross-sectional images demonstrate the normal appearance of the trabecular bone at site 38, as well as the dysplastic appearance of the bone in the anterior left ramus in the region distal to site 38. The dysplastic bone was partially captured in this scan.
Buccolingual views of anterior left ramus
These buccolingual cross-sectional images demonstrate the lateral position of the dysplastic bone relative to the inferior alveolar nerve canal in the left mandibular ramus. The canal has not been compressed by the dysplastic bone.
2. Retained restorative material at site 38
Small flecks of radiopaque restorative material are retained at site 38. The surrounding bone appears normal. No signs of pathology are present. This is a non-significant incidental finding.
3. Retained root fragment at site 38
A root fragment is retained at the mesial aspect of site 38. The periodontal ligament space surrounding this root fragment appears normal. No pathology surrounds this root fragment. This is a non-significant finding, and is not the source of the patient's positive finding on the bone scan.
